  • Blackhawk:
    • Being a Blackhawk is dangerous.
      • Chop Chop gets head-konked unconscious, for his third time,[1] with a bottle. At the end of this story his head is still bandaged.
      • Blackhawk falls into the ocean from a great distance, and spends some time with his right foot in a cast and his left arm in a sling. Before this story is over he has recovered completely.
    • Garrote's Flame Planes were virtually bulletproof, because of their fiery coating, but this effect could be neutralized with a heavy dose of carbon dioxide. Blackhawk designed both the Flame Planes and the CO2-extinguisher counter-weapon.
    • The Flame Planes were jets. This was the first recorded combat between the Blackhawk Squadron's 1941-model Grumman XF5F Skyrockets and some first-generation jet fighters.
