* Scraps of metal from the L-1011 were shipped back to Los Angeles by Bryan Burk so that they could be used as percussion instruments in the musical score. {{crossref}}
{{I=Oceanic_L-1011_(1).jpg=200=right=An Oceanic Airlines L-1011 is visible taxiing at LAX. {{crossref}}}}* The first registration number of the aircraft used in Lost was N308EA. The sister aircraft N310EA (first flight at July 30th, 1972) crashed at December 29th, 1972 in Florida, Everglades swamp. Peculiar as it may be, the aircraft crashed at the time of 2342. After the crash the aircraft was damaged beyond repair, but some intact parts were reused as replacements on other aircraft. Allegedly, on board of other L-1011s that had these parts, ghosts of dead cockpit crew were spotted. It is said that they protected the L-1011s which they were now apparently "attached" to. The aircraft used in Lost is claimed to have also had some of these replacement parts, though it remains as an unconfirmed rumor.http//terryle.bloguje.cz/850968-the-lost-s-airplane-had-a-sister-she-crashed-at-23-42.php
* As of 2007, Oceanic Airlines is possibly the only commercial airliner in the world to still make use of the L-1011 for passenger transport, as can be seen by a taxiing L-1011 in Oceanic livery in {{crossref}}.

The fuselage props are stored in two locations. The nose piece is stored in a lot by the highway in Heeia Kea, HI (http//maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=21.448008,-157.814891&spn=0.001233,0.00195&t=h&z=19 Covered nose section seen on Google Maps). The rest of the fuselage, including the middle section, is stored in a lot behind Dillingham Airfield in Waialua, HI, which is only minutes away from the wreckage filming location at Mokuleia Beach. The Beechcraft fuselage that depicted the Drug smugglers' plane is also stored in the same lot at Dillingham Airfield (http//maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=21.577934,-158.20033&spn=0.001232,0.00195&t=h&z=19 storage location on Google Maps).

{{I=ExposeCrashShoot.jpg=200=right=Behind the scenes of the shooting of {{ep}}, as seen in the Lost The Complete Third Season (DVD).}}
According to the Official_Lost_Podcast_transcript/April_5,_2007, 2007 podcast, line producer Jean Higgins had been asking Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse for about two years whether the Lockheed L-1011 body representing the main fuselage could be "thrown away" after the survivors had left their original beach camp in {{ep}}. However, Damon and Carlton had insisted that they might still have use for it one day, and thus felt vindicated once {{ep}} came along. Oddly enough, however, the main fuselage body is nowhere to be seen in the "Lost On Location" featurette for the episode on the Lost The Complete Third Season (DVD).

The tail section of the plane, meanwhile, was broken off before the rest of the plane was transported to Oahu http//l1011.homestead.com/lst783.html and is presumably still residing in Mojavehttp//starbulletin.com/2005/06/14/features/story1.html. The tail section of Oceanic Flight 815 seen in {{ep}} and {{ep}} was completely created via CGI in both instances.
