Anachronisms 

The guards are carrying WW2 era M1 Carbines - it would seem that by 2024, a newer weapon would be available.

Continuity 

Shots of the X-80 use footage of a Convair F-102 Delta Dagger, but not always the *same* F-102, as evidenced by the identification number on the side of the aircraft. During re-entry, some footage of a Convair F-106 Delta Dart is used as well, giving the impression that the plane changed from an F-102 to an F-106 and then back again.

Factual errors 

(at around 6 mins) The pilot employs the "central stabilizers" with the jet at 100 miles altitude (500,000 feet). There is no appreciable air at that altitude so stabilizers (fins) would be useless.

When Col. Martin orders the Sergeant to post a guard outside the operating room, the Sergeant salutes. The Colonel is "covered" (wearing a hat); the Sergeant is not. Military protocol specifies hats are not worn indoors and salutes are not rendered indoors nor when "uncovered."

With the jet reaching 100 miles altitude it would be above the atmosphere and yet there are lots of sounds effects of the jet's engine and speed. Sound requires air to emanate and be heard.

Revealing mistakes 

As the X-80 is gaining altitude, there is a shot of the plane supposedly in a steep climb. But the clouds in the background are obviously at the same sharp angle, revealing that the footage of a level flight has just been "tilted" optically.

The bald skullcaps on the mutants were not applied well and some of them have wrinkles and their hairlines are obviously artificial.
