In later seasons of JAG, the introduction shows a brief segment of AH-64 Apache attack helicopters flying in formation. However, as the opening credits are intended to display Navy and Marine Corps activities, this would be a bit out of place, as neither the Navy nor the Marine Corps operates the AH-64 - in the US Military, only the Army does, while the Marine Corps employs the AH-1W 'Whiskey' Cobra.

Quotes
Narrator: Following in his Father's footsteps as a naval aviator, lieutenant commander Harmon Rabb Jr. suffered a crash while landing his Tomcat on a storm tossed carrier at sea. Diagnosed with night blindness, Harm transferred to the Navy's Judge Advocate General Corps, which investigates, defends, and prosecutes the law of the sea. There with fellow JAG lawyer Major Sarah MacKenzie, he now fights in and out of the court room with the same daring and tenacity that made him a top gun in the air. 1 of 1 found this interesting Interesting?

Q
Did Patrick really loose his leg as depicted in the JAG TV Series?
A
No, he did not. Special effects were used as detailed below.JAG' effects Throughout the fall, viewers have called and e-mailed, wondering how the producers of "JAG" make actor Patrick Labyorteaux appear to have suffered the same leg amputation as his character, Lt. Bud Roberts."He wanted to keep his job and he's a master of his craft, so he went out and blew up his leg," said Avery Drewe, a "JAG" post-production producer. He's kidding, of course. Drewe said the missing leg is achieved through a combination of effects, including Labyorteaux wearing a prosthesis and bending his leg so it's bound up behind him in a specially created rig."We work carefully with the camera angles so when he's walking toward us we can't see that," Drewe said. If his leg should peek out, it's digitally erased in post-production. A scene where Bud walked up the stairs combined special effects shots of Labyorteaux with shots of a real amputee. Now Bud has recovered to the point that he walks using a prosthetic leg with only a slight limp."Our writing staff wanted to make it accurate, so we tracked what the real progression would be," Drewe said.Original article: http://www.post-gazette.com/tv/20021219owen6.asp
