Well except in the last episode.

# General Harlan "Bull" Fullbright

# Wiki....
Contrary to popular belief, however, the show did feature at least eight possible on-screen deaths, although only five are definitive, with one other being from a dream sequence and the remainder left ambiguous:

In Season 1's "The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas", gangster Gianni Christian is thrown from a high-rise hotel window into the fountain at the front of the hotel; a report of Gianni's death was heard by the team on the radio.
In Season 1's "Beast From the Belly of a Boeing", the main villain is sucked out of an aircraft to fall to his death when a bullet causes the plane to depressurize (although he was wearing a parachute, the villain was apparently trapped by his parachute rig on the emergency door as they both go out the plane together — so even if he has time to use it, he would still be too heavy to save himself).
In Season 1's "Pros and Cons", an inmate was shot and killed by a corrupt Warden.
In Season 2's "Diamonds 'n Dust" a mine-owner was shot and killed, although not seen on-screen. The characters often refer to this.
In Season 3's "Skins", a park ranger is ambushed and shot, later to have his sister call the A-Team.
In the Season 4 finale "The Sound of Thunder", General Fullbright is shot and killed. Fullbright's assailant is immediately killed thereafter when the shack he was hiding inside erupted in flames (Hannibal had fired his gun at gas barrels outside the shack. This is the only time Hannibal killed anyone in the entire series).
In Season 5, the A-Team escape their prison cells and have a gun battle with the MPs guarding them. One is clearly seen to be struck and killed—but the scene is revealed to be a dream sequence.
In Season 5 Episode # 91 "The Say U.N.C.L.E. Affair" General Stockwell is shown in a gunfight with an old intelligence comrade (David McCallum) who crashes his truck. It is ambiguous as to whether he is killed or escapes.
The majority of the above examples do not directly involve the A-Team members themselves and instead are acts that are conducted by villains.

# i just like the way they bought the helicopter scene

# a-team
lots of shooting
nobody ever actually gets shot
so they practice with targets that reward poor aim

# worse?
how so?
Storm troopers just missed their targets
whereas the A-team would shoot at your feet till you danced yourself to prison :P

# He He...
But at least the Stormtroopers managed to bag Some ewoks and a couple of Jawas...

Although.. I would have preferred the trilogy to go...

A New Hope = The Massive Jawa Massacre...
Empire Strikes back = "I Rather like this one Bob.. Leave It"
Return of the Jedi = Mahooosive Ewok Massacre.

Although your point flies like an arrow, fair and True
