Chapter 5 Ends: Sam Finds Flight 815?

Here are a few screencaps from today's activity of "Find Black Rock". This seems to be the end of LOST's Find815 ARG, but as we get more updates we will keep you all updated.

You can watch the videos and view a screencap of one of the several possible solutions at the following link:

Timeline question -

With all the references to Christmas, how could he have found it so close to then when it is just now almost Christmas. According to the LostPedia timeline, Naomi tells Sayid that 815 was found via robot submersibles on December 21st, only a few days after she arrives on the island (December 17th).

Even if it the news was transmitted immediately, it seems odd that he could be finding it much earlier than the 17th...

Is it just me?

The Oceanic Commercial just aired in NYC!

ReignkingTW said...

And it had Sam Thomas in it...showing flyoceanicair.com and find815.com as well. The latter web site seems to be flooded or down right now...

Lacy said...

Yeah, I'm having problems bringing either up.

Lostie's Art said...

Find 815 just says 'Missing Critical ScriptsFind815 is missing critical content and cannot be displayed at this time. We hope to resolve the issue shortly and apologise for any inconvenience.'

Pru's Corner said...

wow, did anyone else think that was a terrible let down? i went to the website right away, right at the end of the commercial and it looked exactly the same. hmm...

Linds said...

yeah, serious letdown...no new information... except sam finding "flight815..."

still not convinced. talbot seemed fishy at the end of the video...so did sam.

i like the idea of 2 planes though! whoopi goldberg even said it on the view

ReignkingTW said...

IMO there's more to it...I was surprised that flyoceanicair was the same, though. Remember, we still have the-maxwell-group.com to log in to...

The Glass Eye said...

Anyone watch Eli Stone for the Oceanic golden pass commercial? What happened in it?

Pru's Corner said...

right, i tried several different sorts of combinations and still got the same message on t-m-g.com

Ashlee said...

I saw the commercial during Eli Stone, but it seems like the servers are bogged down or something, I can't even see the maxwell group site.
However, during the commercial there were some cool quick shots of the plane under the ocean. :)
Hopefully the 815 servers will be feeling better tomorrow.
Also: if I call Georgia Cavanagh's number, I'm getting a busy signal. grrr.

Lacy said...

The commercial was basically a lot like the regular flyoceanicair vid. It said to go to their website to find out more about the golden ticket. I, along with many more, I'm sure, have gone to the site to see it virtually unchanged.

Pru's Corner said...

yeah, glass eye--several of us watched it sounds like. there were a couple shots during a regular oceanic air commercial where sam busted in and said "flight 815...we found it"

and then it gave the websites for both flight815.com and flyoceanicair.com which appear to be unchanged though i'm having problems viewing sam's desk now.

I am pretty sure the ocaenic site is trying to play a new video but it is having trouble I am pretty sure the the source code has changed showing 'OceanicAdvert_new2.swf', and I think that is new tonight.

Lacy said...

I called Cavanagh and it just keeps ringing. We have to figure this out tonight.

Pru's Corner said...

interesting, think you're right.

Pru's Corner said...

oh man, i hear ya, we watched that entire crap tv show (no offense if anyone liked it)to get this last clue!

i'm not getting any video or pic other than the background sky on oceanic air--anybody else have better luck?

Lacy said...

I feel you pru. That show was pretty eh. I'm getting the same thing. I keep reloading the page, and I usually get the same old video. Other times I just get the logo and clouds. I'm not getting anything but black on find815.com.

Pru's Corner said...

hmmm...i thought that the powers who be were usually more on top of this....

Pru's Corner said...

maybe we should visit the chat room
;)

Michael said...

I just tried refreshing the-maxwell-group.com

It came up with a new error message.

"Authentication Error

Lacy said...

what chat room?

Pru's Corner said...

i'm trying to listen to a link from the maxwell group site.

it says oscar talbot is speaking about the discovery in the sunda trench.

Lacy said...

I'm not all that familiar with that site. How'd you get to that? It just takes me to the login page.

Pru's Corner said...

i just happened to go to the-maxwell-group.com in firefox...that's the only difference we've noticed. i'm currently on the uclaradio.com station

the player is at http://uclaradio.com/podcasts/player.html

it's taking forever to load though

ReignkingTW said...

Lacy, we've had TMG site from the very beginning, and it wasn't going to be login-able until now.

I have not seen any audio at TMG...

pace. said...

Is there a chat room you guys are in?

pace. said...

Yeah, I knew about the site, it just seemed like there was something new everyone had discovered.

AS6 said...

I hope someone uploads a vid of the Oceanic Announcement from Eli Stone for all of us outside of the US sometime soon.

And what the hell is going on with the Maxwell Group site? I've still got the old stock standard login page.

AS6 said...

Whoa, hold on, looks like Oceanic Conspiracies has the vid.

ReignkingTW said...

Clear your cache and reload TMG.

AS6 said...

Nope, that doesn't work. Others over at Oceanic Conspiracies are having the same troubles.

And find815.com isn't displaying at all.

I think I'll just give it a few hours.

@derek pillie:
Naomi didn't tell Sayid the plane was found a few days ago - according to her it happened some time ago - remember how she told Charlie there was a big fuss about his death and the Greatest Hits album and so on... all that couldn't have happened in a few days...

Derek Pillie said...

@jake

That makes her behavior last night even more confusing... she was portrayed as an innocent person just trying to help. So what options are there?

1) Naomi was lying and is a fraud
2) Events in Find 815 are not occuring on the same timeline as the Island
3) Events on the island are not matching up with the timeline on lostpedia
4) Something about the island affects how time is reckoned
5) Find815's story is not supposed to be compatible with the show's story

Some combination of the above is possible too I guess.

I vote for Naomi lying, but I could go just about any direction on this one.

Here is something that doesn't make sense to me. Flight 815 is found intact at the bottom of the ocean with passengers. How did the O6 get off the plane to survive then? Maybe this will be covered in next weeks episode.

hanuman said...

i believe that naomi and the other people coming to the island off the freighter are part of the maxwell group. They want to find and do something with the island real bad. They don't want the world to know what their up to, and certainly can't have anyone snooping around looking for Oceanic 815. so, they plant an aircraft at the bottom of the ocean in an area thats unreachable for salvage or investigation (Talbot lays down this propaganda in the maxwell site audio clip), and they see Sam's endeavors to keep the search for the aircraft alive as an opportunity. They send him coded messages and manipulate him onto the christiane I to make the discovery of the planted aircraft. This angle makes the discovery that much more plausible to the rest of the world. Hence Naomi telling the survivors that the wreckage was found and that there were no survivors.

Now the Maxwell group can continue their search for the island without attention. we see them finally arrive in last night's episode. From the trailers for next week we hear the man who parachuted in tell jack that their rescue is not actually their first priority. An arrangement will be made over circumstances i won't speculate on to get the Oceanic 6 off the island, under the condition that they tell the world that there are no other survivors, when in fact , there are. This is the source of the guilt that Hurley shows in last nights episode, as well as the reason jack wants to go back to the island.

The scene from last night's episode in the basketball court between hurley and jack gives me this impression.

We will get more info and access to the maxwell group website as this progresses...

Indie Richard said...

umm has any one been to oceanicairlines.com recently. I dont know when they changed it or if this is even relevent anymore but the site title is called Possibility and there is a code to be cracked I think... here it is

Indie Richard said...

could this be some how related in getting into the maxwell group site..?

NomadsHorizon said...

Anyone notice that the stock ticker's numbers at the bottom of the screen of Oscar Talbot are all related to the numbers. (24 is 42 backwards... kind of a stretch but it seems like more than a coincidence).

I figured the guys would go through the trouble of using real stock prices so that we could figure out the date that 815 was 'discovered' but alas this is not the case (The S&P has never been that high, and the DOW has not been so low since 2002).

Could there be a connection with the advert to the actual television programme?
