Somehow, an Oceanic plane is going to crash on Desperate Housewives

Oceanic plane
Yes, you read that headline right: an Oceanic Airlines plane is going to crash on Wisteria Lane.

One of the big ratings stunts on Desperate Housewives this season will be a plane crash that happens in the ladies' neighborhood that will affect everyone on the show (when a plane crashes in your neighborhood that's bound to happen). But a source at ABC tells E! that the plane will be an Oceanic plane, in a nod to Lost. No, it won't be the same plane, Oceanic 815, just a plane from the same airline. So don't expect time travel or polar bears running around Gabrielle's lawn. Although a weird crossover like that might be fascinating to see. Of course, I wonder how this billboard from FlashForward could possibly be right if this happens.

This isn't the first time the airline has shown up on a non-ABC show. The pic above is from FOX's The War At Home.

"This isn't the first time the airline has shown up on a non-ABC show." I'm confused by this statement - Desperate Housewives is an ABC Studios production that airs on ABC.

(Perhaps you meant to say "The airline has also shown up on non-ABC shows in the past.")

Exactly! Oceanic is that "generic" airline name used for many years well before "Lost" ever came on the air.

This is kind of a huge spoiler that I didn't want to read in a headline, a while ago Ausiello had a thing about this but I just searched by it, also Desperate Housewives IS an ABC show.

i'm from a suburb of buffalo, ny and the only thing this 'plot' reminds me of is the fatal plane crash that landed on a house in clarence center several months ago killing 50 people. so, not cool seeing this.
