Oceanic Airlines Flight 815 was a scheduled flight fromSydney, Australia to Los Angeles, California, United States, on aBoeing 777. On September 22, 2004, the airliner, carrying 324 passengers, deviated from its original course and disappeared over the Pacific Ocean. This is the central moment in the seriesLost and the personal chronological beginning of the main characters’ exploits on the Island.
Flight 815′s physical breakup was due to Desmond Hume failing to enter a code into the Swan station computer, causing a large burst of electromagnetic energy. The true cause of the plane’s off-course deviation and arrival to the Island’s airspace wasJacob, the supernatural entity who protected the Island. Jacob brought the plane because many of the flight’s passengers werecandidates to replace him as protector.
Two months after the crash, wreckage was found in the Sunda Trench in the Indian Ocean near Bali. All passengers were presumed dead. In reality, however, the discovered wreckage was staged by Charles Widmore. The real plane had suffered a mid-air break-up and crashed on an uncharted Island, with more than 69 passengers and 2 crew members surviving the crash itself. Later, six of those survivors made it off the Island and became known as the Oceanic Six.
By late 2007, the Island’s treacherous conditions and the violent battles between passengers, the Island’s inhabitants, and other factions killed nearly every passenger on the plane. As of Lost’s finale episode, only Kate Austen, Hugo “Hurley” Reyes, James “Sawyer” Ford, Walt Lloyd, Rose Nadler, Bernard Nadler, Claire Littleton,Emma, and Zach were still be alive. Cindy Chandler was the only crew member of the flight to survive the series. Some of the survivors were able to escape on AjiraFlight 316 which they used to return to the Island after leaving. Hurley became Protector of the Island and remained behind with Ben Linus. Rose and Bernard also stayed behind to live out the rest of their lives together, in harmony. Cindy, Emma and Zach also remained to live under Hurley’s guard.
