threat and horror
Pilots pass out as they experience increasing G-force during training sessions in a centrifuge machine; all are seen making quick recoveries. Sequences of very mild threat include aerial manoeuvres that appear to be at risk of going wrong or that result in near misses; however, these moments all have reassuring resolutions.
language
There is occasional very mild bad language ('butt').
theme
There are undetailed references to the deaths of Blue Angel squadron members over the years, with some focus on the most recent of these, in 2016, when a pilot died in a training disaster. We see brief clips of news footage and memorial events as pilots commemorate their lost colleague, but there is no visual detail of the actual incident. This sequence is brief and sensitively presented.
