* ComingInHot: Unlike Film/TOPGUN which skirted this particular aspect of carrier aviation altogether, this show makes no bones about how ''dangerous'' carrier landings are, particularly night traps. Harm's backstory involves a botched night trap that killed his GuyInBack, a Lt Isaacs who was grounded for unsafe flying scorches to death after ejecting from her failed landing, another aviator "dead sticks" his plane in because a different crewman' mistake left him with inadequate fuel, Harm again has to land an aircraft that is leaking fuel and has one engine flamed out.

* UnfriendlyFire: Multiple episodes deal with this all too real horror faced by military personnel. People are shot, strafed, bombed, hamburgered by artillery not by the bad guys but by people who were supposed to be on their side.

* BsckdoorPilot "Ice Queen" gives us the very epitome of a BusCrash, pictured above, [[spoiler:Lieutenant Loren Singer's]] remains are found after a Boy Scout accidentally shot an arrow into them. The poor woman's been dead for two or three weeks judging from decomposition, and crows have completely eaten away her face, leaving a bare skull with heaps of rotten flesh mangled around it. She was [[AssholeVictim a rotten person to the core]], so the creators used her as cannon fodder to set up a new series, knowing nobody would miss her. It's also a stark moment where the show kills off a character in such a grisly manner to show that they ''mean'' it and there is no going back... and to top it all off, she's also used as the first murder victim for ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', where remains like this are found on a regular basis, often in even ''worse'' condition than hers.

* "Pilot Error" highlights the AdultFear that spouses and family members of military personnel face: That their loved ones will be gone for months at a time and could die without warning, in addition to more mundane concerns about infidelity (the deceased pilot and his female wingman were very close, and rumors abound that they may have had an affair).

** In the pilot episode, Lt. Arutti is thrown overboard and drowns. Upon performing an autopsy, the coroner finds that she survived the fall, suffered internal injuries, but was conscious and ingested water while trying to swim despite her injuries. According to the coroner, her death was slow and excruciatingly painful. Even worse is that she did nothing to warrant her murder. A crewman with a grudge mistook her for someone else in the dark and she was effectively killed entirely at random.
