This Weeks TV Guide features a blurb on a commercial airline pilot commenting on the catastrophic plane crash of Oceanic Flight 85. His assessment was right on the money but, for one detail. He mentioned the plane being a 777. Wrong, we know, that the cabin was that of an aging Boeing 767 and the wreckage including the engine that sucked up that passenger in the first episode was that of a broken up Delta L1011 that got a second wind for its 15 minutes of fame in "Lost."

With an anglamation of so many different aircraft it's quite easy to get confused about this. People here on a A.net are even still asking about what aircraft it was.  Smile

If we only see a tiny amount of it and not the main parts, like the tail, cockpit front etc, then we will still ask.

He mentioned the plane being a 777 wrong,

And he calls himself a pilot

The cabin shots I've seen (we're only up to the third episode in Australia) look like an L1011 to me. I found some screen shots on a fansite which would seem to back this up for me - this one would seem to show a 9 or 10 abreast aircraft with a high cabin ceiling - things which you find on an L1011, not a 767...

Mind you, if we want to talk realism, then an aircraft coming down with survivors when this happens at altitude is somewhat, um, fanciful:

But maybe that's precisely the idea...?

I know, the outside was a mothballed Delta L1011 but at least in my eyes, the 767 looks closer to the cabin that blew apart on LOST.

The interior doesn't look like either an L-1011 or 767 to me at all. It appears to be 3x4x3 in coach, which would suggest a 747. The ceiling also doesn't appear to have the somewhat distinctive square patterns overhead that the L-1011 had.
