  • Season 1 Episode 1: Pilot (1)

  • In the first draft of the pilot, the episode would have covered six weeks of the story. Originally, the first episode would have ended with all the survivors already living in tents.

  • The tail of modern day commercial aircraft has a downward force acting on it. This is to counteract the upward forces from the main wing. When the tail section broke free, the tail should have gone down with the passenger section going up but in the scene, we see it going in the reverse direction. However, because we later learn how the plane crashed, this may not be an actual goof.

  • The pilots would not have changed course had the plane lost communications. International flight regulations and procedures specify that, in the event of lost radio communication, an airplane should change its transponder code to 7600, then follow the flight plan it had already been cleared for. It is for this exact reason that full flight plans are given and verified before the airplane takes off. By diverting course, the pilots violated several flight regulations, and, had they survived, would most likely be stripped of their licenses.

  • A jet engine produces a tremendous amount of thrust. Therefore, there is no way it would be just sitting on the beach like it is in "Pilot."

  • In the first flashback that Jack has, the attendant announces that the "pilot" has turned on the seat belt sign. The next two flashbacks - for Charlie and Kate - are the same except she says "captain."

  • Having a running engine on the beach made for a pretty dynamic rescue scene, but when the nose section came off, all controls to the engine would be lost, and it would have started spooling down at that point and quickly gotten to where it would not have the power to pull anyone off their feet. In addition, fuel pump power would have been cut off when the plane was ripped apart. The fuel could not even gravity feed as the engine was on top of the wing.

  • Nitpick: It has been suggested that in such a violent plane crash, the dog could not have been uninjured when everyone else had bruises and cuts. However, the dog could have been injured, but they may have just not shown it, or it might not just have external wounds.

  • Just after Jack, Kate, and Charlie are in the nose of the plane, they start running through the jungle. During this scene, off to the right hand corner of the screen, you can see someone standing behind the trees in a blue poncho.

  • Season 0 Destination Lost

  • "Make Your Own Kind of Music" was the name of the song played in the opening scene most famously performed by "Mama" Cass Elliot on her 1969 album Bubblegum, Lemonade and Something for Mama.

  • Season 0 Lost: Revelation

  • The location of Kelvin's death is the same place we saw the 'tailies' in Abandoned, when (whilst carrying the unconscious Sawyer back to the beach) Mr Eko says he does not want to cross those rocks, but travel through the jungle instead.
