Pilot Discusses Plane Crash On Lost

Sat Feb 19, 2005 2:10 pm

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.

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.
