Notes


Address: The lot is located on the mauka side of Kamehameha Hwy just north of the He'eia Kea Boat Harbor in Kane'ohe.


Notes: The rest of the fuselage is stored at Dillingham Airfield.

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.

1. Driving northbound on Kamehameha Hwy, the bay is visible immediately off the right edge of the road.

2. Driving northbound on Kamehameha Hwy, this is your view soon after passing the boat harbor on your right.

3. The front of the nose soon becomes visible on your left from Kamehameha Hwy., across a field. The driveway to the lot is further up the road on the left.

4. Soon, the vegetation will obscure your view momentarily.

5. But as you pass in front of the storage lot, you will again see the nose cone. This photo is taken from the highway while driving northbound.

6. A moment farther you will drive past the gate to the lot.

7. A view as you pass the lot and say farewell to the nose piece of Flight 815.
 

Only the front side of the nose piece facing the highway is covered by a tarp. The rear side is uncovered. Photos inside the lot by Thierry Guillot, who was given access to the area

On one filming day, the gate appeared to be the entrance to the He'eia Kea Valley Park locations.
