Plane

#### Explanation:

A direct object is a noun that receives that action of the verb. You can find it by asking "what" or "who" after the verb.

See these examples:

• Tammy ate pie after dinner.
$\rightarrow$ Tammy ate what? Tammy ate pie. Pie is the direct object.

• They renovated their house after they purchased it.
$\rightarrow$ They renovated what? They renovated the house. House is the direct object.

• Lydia tucked her brother in bed and read him a story.
$\rightarrow$ Lydia tucked who? She tucked her brother in bed. Brother is the direct object.
$\rightarrow$ Lydia read what? She read a story. Story is also a direct object.

In your sentence we will do the same thing.

• I flew the plane to the eastern shore.
$\rightarrow$ I flew what? I flew the plane. Plane is the direct object.
