A Russian Is Coming - S3-E12

Factual error: While introducing himself to the downed Russian pilot, Hogan claims he is with the "US Air Force." He was actually with the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC) as the US Air Force wasn't formed until 1947, 2 years after the war ended.

Information Please - S2-E15

Factual error: The German agent pretending to be an American pilot is wearing a one piece flying suit from the 1960's when he is questioned by Hogan and the British escapee in the barracks. It even has the US Air Force logo on the sleeve, which didn't come into use until 1947, after the war.
