Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Above and Beyond...

This high-flying WW II adventure is peppered with mild and moderate profanities, as well as terms of deity used as expletives. While the dangers of active combat are far away from these pilots, the perilous nature of their mission is emphasized. Deaths from accidents and equipment failure are discussed and implied. In one scene, a mechanical mishap causes an injury and a man’s bloodied face is shown. Servicemen drink, smoke and play cards, both for recreation and to dampen their fears. As well, a romantically inclined couple exchange kisses, and the young man unbuttons his girlfriend’s shirt (her bra strap is shown) and fondles her thigh. In another scene, an authority figure uses his position to impress a young woman he wishes to make advances toward. Sexual relationships are implied and the script includes some sexual innuendo.
