Frank J. Lapidus is an aircraft pilot who was originally scheduled to pilot Oceanic Airlines Flight 815. Frank is one of the few people in the world who believe that the wreckage of Oceanic Flight 815 found at the bottom of the Sunda Trench was staged. Matthew Abaddon described him as a "pretty good pilot", but Frank is also known to have been an alcoholic. Frank was hired to be the chopper pilot on the freighter Kahana to ferry the science team to the Island, but after the death of Naomi, he was forced to transport the mercenary team as well. When Frank learned that Oceanic Flight 815 passengers were alive on the Island, he agreed to help them escape. In 2007, he began piloting for Ajira Airways. Frank piloted the Ajira flight that returned Jack, Kate, and Hurley to the Island; Frank's whereabouts after their return are unknown.
