Just watched the first screening in New Zealand of 'Lost'. For the whole two hours of watching it, I was wondering what aircraft is that. Does anyone know what aircraft it was?

I was wondering about that myself. At first I thought it was a 747, as when they got to the front of the fuselage in the jungle, it looked like it had a slight hump, but in the 'inside scene' the flight deck was on the same level as the passenger deck. I think it may be a Tristar, and it is easy to get one from the scrap yard.

It was either a Tristar or DC10 I think. I thought it was a DC10 for some reason. In actual fact i think it was a hodgepodge of spare parts from a whole lot of aircraft.

Actually Rob, I think you may be right it did look more like a DC10. During the start when Jack asked the fat guy to stay with the pregnant woman. Then saw that the tail was going to fall, so quickly ran over to get them to run. The falling tail did look more of that from a DC10. It didn't have the bulk that the Tristar has.

I don't think it was the tail because while in the air the rear fuslage was ripped off. It must have been the wing that fell cause the engine blew up after

Guys,

If it's the same show that was broadcast in the USA sometime last year, then the aircraft was N783DL, an ex-Delta TriStar.

There was a whole thread devoted to this subject back in September last year. See http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/1752450

If you're interested, there's also some pictures and info on how the aircraft was scrapped and shipped out to Hawaii for the filming at http://www.mojavebooks.com/mhv/040922-1.html


Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Titch

actually I subconsciously noted that it looked like the Delta Livery, but for some reason i didn't put two & two together until I saw titch's post.

Does anybody know what kind of access there is to the filming location? I Know that it is on the North Shore of Oahu. Can you go out there, or is it blocked off and you can't even see it.

I will be out there next month and was kind of curious.

Can the engine still operate like it was even after a crash?

With the force of the impact, the engines will either rip apart or explode.

Well, the engines on N736PA were running at the time that the KLM plane hit them. The pilots couldn't shut them off because the entire roof (where the cut off switches are) was removed from the cabin.

I was reading an account of it (I think from Dorothy Kelly) and they had to move people away from the engines as they were still running. As they were laying on the ground, the cowlings were distorted and they began to throw out bits of metal and catch fire.

Pretty similar to what happened in Lost.

So yes, it can happen, and has happened - though in the Lost case, considering the plane fell from a great height, it shouldn't have been possible.

Trent.



I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!
