Corrected entry: Tom Hanks is flying westbound across the Pacific with packages in his charge. After surviving a crash and four years on a desert island, he ends by delivering the one remaining intact package to an address in Texas. How did such a package start out by being flown westbound across the Pacific?

Correction: He's returning it to sender. We already know that it was that lady who sent the package since it had her wings on it. He just figures that after four years, the package would not be missed at its destination, but giving it to the sender with the note that the package had saved his life might actually mean something.

Factual error: In the scene outside the pub, a Ford Sierra is seen driving past. These were not introduced into the UK until Autumn 1982. The film is supposed to be set in 1981.
