Answer:

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.
    #rarr# Tammy ate what? Tammy ate pie. Pie is the direct object.

  • They renovated their house after they purchased it.
    #rarr# They renovated what? They renovated the house. House is the direct object.

  • Lydia tucked her brother in bed and read him a story.
    #rarr# Lydia tucked who? She tucked her brother in bed. Brother is the direct object.
    #rarr# 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.
    #rarr# I flew what? I flew the plane. Plane is the direct object.
