Pearl Harbor not in High Alert, Aircrafts left parked, wingtip up, anti-aircraft guns unmaned, ammunition boxes locked. Accurate Japan developed aerial torpedoes that can
operate in shallow water.
Nagumo's ships followed a storm front & maintained radio silence to avoid their location.
There were three waves of airplane attacks, but the third wave was called off to use in case of a counter attack.
First wave arrived at 7:55 a.m. and consisted of 183 planes
Second wave arrived almost an hour later with 167 planes.

Two Army Operators at Oahu's northern shore radar station detected planes coming into Pearl Harbor. Reported this to junior officer and said it was B17.
Inaccurate Two waves an hour apart but the movie makes it appear as one.
