Dillingham Airfield (Fuselage)

The Lockheed L-1011 (Oceanic Flight 815) and Beechcraft (Nigerian drug plane) fuselages are stored in the area behind the airstrip.

As of February 2007, the Flight 815 fuselage is completely covered by an opaque black tarp, as is the surrounding fence, although the Beechcraft is uncovered and visible through the seams of the fence.

Do not disturb the airfield, and do not enter the fenced area at the rear, which is an active military training area. Do not enter the fenced area of the fuselage storage lot! Airfield security drives by this area frequently.

NOTE: FUSALAGE WAS REMOVED AFTER PRODUCTION OF LOST. THE LOT IS EMPTY AS OF MAY 2010

Notes


The fuselage prop is a real Lockheed L-1011 TriStar, although Flight 815 is a Boeing 777 in the Lost storyline. This Lockheed model is a widebody passenger jet manufactured between 1968 and 1984.

Before being used on Lost, this particular aircraft was originally Eastern Airline's N308EA, and was the ninth L-1011 built overall (production number 1009), and it first flew on June 12, 1972. It was later mothballed in a Mojave Desert storage area until 1991, when it was purchased by Delta Airlines, who re-registered it and flew it for six and a half years as N783DL. The plane was then stored at Victorville, then later in the Mojave Desert, where it was purchased by Aviation Warehouse, an aviation props company specializing in products for television and film. It is unknown whether the Beechraft (possibly a Beechcraft 18) fuselage also came from this source.

Directions:


From Honolulu/Waikiki, enter H1 west, then take H2 North. H2 will end, and keep going straight. After the town ends, ignore the right turn to North Shore/Hale'iwa, and just go straight toward waialua and you will be on Kaukonahua Rd (803). Eventually the road will wind downhill with ironwood trees flanking both sides of the road. At the bottom, go through the yellow blinking light to Farrington Hwy (930). After a half mile there is a traffic circle-- go toward Mokule'ia under the bridge. Continue straight as you see Dillingham Airfield on your left. Pass the first entrance gate, as well as the second one at the middle of the airfield.

After entering Dillingham Airfield's third and final gate at the far end, the road turns left behind the airfield and travels east past the ATC tower. After a few curves, you'll see a windsock on your right, and a knee-high stop sign (see photos and VR at bottom of page). Turn right, and you've arrived. Note that airfield security locks the gate promptly after sunset!

Do not disturb the airfield, and do not enter the fenced area at the rear, which is an active military training area. Do not enter the fenced area of the fuselage storage lot! Airfield security drives by this area frequently.

1) After entering Dillingham Airfield's third and final gate, the road turns left behind the airfield and travels east past the ATC tower. After a few curves, you'll see a windsock on your right, and a knee-high stop sign.

2) You've arrived. Turn right at the stop sign. Do not enter the fenced area behind here, it is an active U.S. Army training ground.

Quicktime Virtual Reality Panorama. Note the Beechcraft fuselage just to the right of the Lockheed (Oceanic) fuselage. Note the red windsock landmark (the knee-high stop sign is too small to be visible in the VR). Directly opposite the storage location and hills is the airstrip itself (the sunny area beyond the windsock). Immediately beyond it in immediate succession are the treeline, highway, and Mokule'ia beach.
