Factual error: When American Cosair fighter planes strafe the Japanese soldiers with their machine guns, only two columns of bullets are seen striking the ground. These planes had six machine guns; there should be six columns.

Continuity mistake: When the plane lands in the pouring rain and the soldiers gets out of the plane, you can see their jackets are already wet from previous takes.
