I don't know what plane it is, but I have some friends who were on their honeymoon in Hawaii last year. They rented a car and were driving some off-the-beaten path roads, and all of a sudden they come across this crashed plane. It freaked them out, becuase it looked freshly crashed, but then they found some people .... they told them they were on a TV set for a new show (this was before it even aired).
Turns out, it was Lost. My friend, who isn't an aviation buff, said the plane was "big, like a 747 or something," but as we all know every plane is a 747 to the non-aviation crowd.

It is a scrapped DL 1011 that was broken up in Victorville and shipped in pieces along with the engines via ship to Honolulu. As luck would have it, I was on the north side of Oahu and went as far as I could on the east side of the island and they were setting it up. It was on a beautiful beach and I let the security guards know that it was a public beach and they could not deny me access. I walked all around the plane (the main fuselage section was right on the beach) and spent about an hour there. It was really a sight and the main guy said it was going to be used as for a television show called LOST and a year later there it was on television.
