The dead airman represents the world outside the confines of the island. He is the proof that life is going on in the world outside. He is essentially the message from the world of adults which Ralph had wished for in the preceeding chapter of the book. Unfortunately he was a message which was misread. The body should have reinforced Ralphs message of keeping a fire going in order to get rescued, by reminding the boys of the existence of the world beyond the island. But the body was mistaken for the beast, which undermined Ralph's authority and turned the boys thoughts inwards and away from the outside world and the possibility of rescue.
The dead pilot.
While watching the fire, Sam and Eric believe they see the beast, but in fact they only see the dead pilot.
The body of a dead pilot parachutes down onto the island. This is what they interpret to be the Beast.
Chapter Seven ends with Ralph, Jack and Roger climbing to the top of the mountain, where they see the dead body of the pilot but in the darkness they mistake it for the beast.
The dead pilot.
The only "man" in the novel "Lord of the Flies" was a dead pilot who landed on the mountain top.
Technically one of the littluns finds the dead pilot hense the "monster" in the book but Simon is the one who figures out he is not a monster and instead the dead pilot from the plane
The dead body of the pilot and his parachute.
jack,ralph,and roger are the first one to see thee dead pilot thinking it was the beast later on simon goes and realizes that it is no beast but a dead pilot
No one. It was a dead pilot. Once he landed, Simon saw him (while walking around) and noticed that he was a dead pilot.

They find the body of the dead airplane pilot with his parachute still attached.
They all died in the crash. Also, the "Beastie" is the dead body of the pilot. It doesn't explain the crash well in the beginning.
He unties the parachute from the pilot. Than the pilot is blown by the wind into the surf. Then, as is Simon's body, it is carried out to sea by the tides, but not before it again terrifies the boys.
There are no adults present in "Lord of the Flies" apart from the dead body of the pilot. The upbringing of the boys is not responsible for their actions, the problem lies deeper than that, with the primal presence of the beast within.
