Dear Mildred - S4-E7

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where BJ, Hawkeye, and Radar are in the motorcade talking about the horse, Radar is talking about how he doesn't want to give away the horse. He is standing in front of some barrels and when he moves, you can see some of the crew, the horse owner, and what looks like another horse in the background for 1 second.

Revealing mistake: When the camera is in a close up on Dan the pilot, the sound is a chopper that is running full power, but you can tell that the main rotors are turning slowly to simulate flight.

Dear Mildred - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: When Colonel Potter's in his office finishing up his letter to Mildred, right before Margaret, Frank, and the others walk in, the things on his desk change their positions between shots - such as the paper tray moving from Potter's left to the right side of his desk.

Dear Mildred - S4-E7

Revealing mistake: In the shot where the horse kicks in the door, there's actually two shots - a kick, a quick cut, another kick. If you look closely, you can see how the hoof of one of the horse-leg props breaks off during the first kick. The second kick is performed by one leg only. If you look really closely - and probably use the slow-motion function - you can even make out the hand of the one wielding the leg through the hole made in the first kick. (00:18:10)

That's Show Biz - S10-E1

Question: Talking with stripper Candy Doyle, Potter remarks that he still remembers how she used to spin her tassels and that he is reminded of this every time he sees a C 42 revving up. On the net I do find references to a C40A, a C47 and others, but no reference to an aircraft of the time called a C 42. What would he have been referring to?

Answer: The C-42 was a military variant of the Douglas DC-2. Very few C-42's were built, so it's questionable that Potter would specifically have seen that particular model, but, given his military background, it's not entirely unreasonable that he might use the military designation even when the aircraft in question is actually a civilian DC-2.
