Episode 4x02: Helicopter Call Numbers

In LOST Episode 4x02, the Freighter People's helicopter has call numbers that include THE numbers 8 and 42, but there seems to be more meaning behind the complete number.

Thanks to Prouse for the following observations about the numbers on the helicopter tail.

The tail number of the Helicopter that softly crashes on the island is n842m. 8 & 42 (two of the magic numbers). N842m is also the Call Number of a novel by Howard Norman called Northern Lights. The setting is a remote northern village in Canada - very close to Polar Bear territory.
