Factual error: At the end of the movie, when Louis Zamperini returns home from captivity by the Japanese, the plane he emerges from has the early World War II American insignia with the red "meatball" dot in the center of the white star. This was quickly removed when the Japanese entered the war, because the red dot could easily be confused with the "rising sun" emblem on Japanese aircraft. By the time Zamperini was released (1945), the American star had no red dot.
