Corrected entry: After the Opana radar operators call in their discovery of the approaching planes and are told "don't worry about it" they turn off the radar station. In the actual attack they stayed there all during the attack, and even tracked the planes returning to the carriers, thereby locating the exact position of the Japanese fleet. This information was also ignored by the command center.
Corrected entry: During the scene where the B-17 has only one wheel down, the wheel that is down changes. When the B-17 is first shown in a close up with one wheel down, the right wheel is down. But during the sequence where it is shown approaching the runway, and in the crash footage, the left wheel is the one that is down.
Corrected entry: There is a scene early in the movie where a band is playing on the deck of one of the Japanese carriers. The band is playing in 4/4 time, but the director is conducting in 3/4 time.
Corrected entry: In the scene after the attack, Admiral Yamamoto is with his staff and they are listening to a radio report. The report states it's from the Navy Department and is dated December 7. The attack on Pearl Harbr was on December 7, Hawaiian time. But, between Hawaii and Japan there is the International dateline. Therefore, as far as Japan time, the attack was on December 8.
