Zamperini, along with some other former Super Man crewmates, was assigned to conduct a search for a lost aircraft and crew. They were given another B, Green Hornet , notorious among the pilots as a defective " lemon. The three survivors were Zamperini and his crewmates, pilot Russell Allen Phillips and Francis McNamara; with little food and no water, they subsisted on captured rainwater, small fish eaten raw, and birds that landed on their raft.
McNamara ate all the chocolate they had in a panic, but he later redeemed himself by using an oar to defend the survivors from a shark attack. They attempted to gain the attention of a search plane but failed. With the few tools they were able to salvage from the crash, the men were able to manage on two small rafts that got released. They caught two albatrosses , one of which they ate, and used pieces as bait to catch fish, all while fending off constant shark attacks and nearly being capsized by a storm.

Following this, he forgave his captors, and his nightmares ceased.

While there, he attempted to meet with his chief and most brutal tormentor during the war, Mutsuhiro Watanabe , also known as "the Bird", who had evaded prosecution as a war criminal , but Watanabe refused to see him.
It is unknown if Watanabe even read the letter, and Zamperini received no response. In his 90s, Zamperini continued to attend USC football games, and he befriended star quarterback Matt Barkley in His death had mistakenly been announced previously , when the US government classified him as killed in action.
