At approximately 29 minutes into the episode, an a trio of Air Force personnel walk up the hall to talk to Mulder and Scully. The leader of the team, Master Sergeant Hynek, is wearing obsolete rank insignia. The episode aired in 1996, and, one can assume, was filmed no earlier than late 1995; however, the USAF changed the MSgt. rank insignia in 1991, from six downward rockers, to five rockers and one upward chevron. By long before '95 or '96, all personnel would have transitioned to the new insignia. See more
