I was reading that parts of the fuselage of the L1011 are still there. Is that true?

Still where?

The story was the parts of the aircraft were used in other aircraft in Eastern's fleet because the aircraft operating 401 was only a few months old, and there were crews who claimed to see the ghost of the flight engineer on aircraft with the parts from 401.

Yep, if you know how to locate the site, it's not hard to find bits and pieces of the aircraft. A buddy of mine was there just over a year ago on the anniversary of the crash and was able to find some clearly recognizable L10 cabin interior window frames and some pieces of bulkhead wall vinyl that could still be identified as Eastern's design. Lot's of fuselage skin in small pieces (shrapnel).

Don't go by yourself. Be careful of the sawgrass, as it can and will cut you to shreds. And also be careful about stirring up too much of the Everglades muck. If you get any of that stuff in a cut (from the sawgrass or sharp metal) you will likely end up with a nasty infection. Some of the passengers onboard EA401 survived the crash itself, only to succumb to bacterial infections. The crash stirred up that muck and it went everywhere, including into their wounds.
