The Crash and AftermathEdit
Flight 815 split into three parts in midair due to a sudden loss of structural integrity.
The very front of the plane, with part of Business Class and the cockpit, landed in the jungle, not too far inland from the remains of the fuselage; of the passengers in this section of the plane, only one man survived the initial impact - Seth Norris.
Various pieces were also scattered through the nearby jungle, including a complete set of seats found in a small pool beneath a waterfall, and passenger Jack Shephard woke up jabbed into a bamboo stand on the edges of the jungle in the immediate aftermath of the crash.
During the season 2 finale, Desmond Hume surmises that the electromagnetic field built up by not "pushing the button" was to blame for the plane crash, as, according to the computer log printouts from The Pearl, the "system failure" happened on September 22, 2004, the date on which the crash took place.
The character Hurley believes the plane crashed due to the bad luck which seems to accompany him following his lottery win with "the numbers".
Aside from Oceanic Flight 815, various other flights have appeared on the show as well.
