Weir notes that one of the first things they should do is throw away the ten thousand year old dead plants in Atlantis. She says this as she touches an ancient and dead potted plant. In later episodes you can see the dead plant, still not thrown out, through the windows of Weir's office. See more
Major John Sheppard (later Lt. Col.) refers to himself as a veteran pilot of Apache, Cobra and Osprey programs. However, he is an Air Force officer. While a limited number of Ospreys were indeed used by the USAF, Apache and Cobra have always been used by the US Army and Marines, so there is little chance he would have had the occasion of flying the respective helicopters.
