Very sad... The GIIB has been very-very active today and will be flying out to the Bahamas soon. I never did meet him face to face, but did work around him and his aircraft during his many visits to to BGR

Indeed. N492JT has made 6 flights today. It is currently flying to Grand Bahama (MYGF) from Clearwater Int'l (KPIE).

John Travolta's GIIB is registered N492JT. Jett Travolta's birthday is April 13, 1992 (4/92). I wonder if the Gulftstream's tail number is based on his son's birthday.

In a few weeks time, it will have been exactly 10 years since my son died at age 15, in his sleep due to an undetected heart defect. Laurent was also my firstborn. I know exactly what this family is going through. It will never, ever go away.

In my family, the experience ended up pulling us together. My wife and our remaining daughter, now 22, are as close as any family we've ever met, possibly because we have seen up close how suddenly we can lose everything we cherish each other more. But it was not always that way. The first 2 or 3 years after his death, we were all set to explode. My career took a nasty turn due to my inability to cope. My wife just did not care anymore, and our daughter just went wild (granted, right at the beginning of her teenage years, which probably had something to do with it).

But we pulled out of it. Every minute of those first few days are permenantly engraved in my mind, but the misery of the following months fades with time, and you rebuild. Our daughter has become an extraordinarilly mature and responsible young woman. My wife learned (after a long time) to enjoy life once more. I rebuilt my career and found success again.

My prayers are with the Travolta family, and as much as they might feel that life is unfair and terrible, I can assure them that it will get better if they can stick together.

That's horrible, Charles. I'm sorry for your loss. I had a friend die at the same age with a heart defect after a soccer game. At that age, it was emotionally traumatizing for me, just a friend. I can't imagine what it is like for a parent to have to go through that nightmare.

Just heard this on the news this morning, and of all the items, good and bad, this is the one that stood out for me, not least because John is a fellow aviation enthusiast.

Like all the other members above, I'd like to offer my sincerest condolences to John and his family over their loss. Somehow I have a feeling that, if not a member here, he logs on now and again, so hopefully he will read this thread sometime (it's up to us on here to keep it alive for a while) and take a smidgen of comfort from what he reads. I'm not a father, but I have always thought that for a parent to lose a child must be by far the worst thing that could happen to anyone, and I do understand that it's a thing you never get over. You learn to live with it, apparently, but you never get over it.

Being just two weeks younger than John, I've followed his career since he burst on the world stage in the mid-70s, so he's been popping-up every so often in my adult life. I had neither positive or negative feelings about him, assuiming him to be just another Hollywood actor, with probably all the baggage that entails. That changed after I read an in-depth interview with him in the UK's Sunday Times Magazine around six years ago, where he spoke about his life, his love of aviation and how 9/11 affected him. He was an attitude-free interviewee, and his obvious likeability shone through like a beacon.

So John, if you're reading this, I hope you take some comfort from the posts on here. We are thinking of you during this terrible time.

That is very sad to hear. My condolences.  Sad
It is good to hear, though, that you and the other members of your family made it through eventually, as hard as it is.

Normally something like this wouldn't really bother me either way, as I don't know the person concerned, sure I'd think it was a little sad, but then get on with my day.

However in this case I really do feel sad for Mr Travolta's family. I don't normally take an interest in Hollywood celebs, but I always have a read/watch if John is mentioned in the press as I have a lot of respect for him as he isn't all money and ego like the other celebs, he is just a normal guy who loves flying so much, he chose a career that would allow him to finance that love and really makes time to talk about his love and passion for flying.

RIP Jett.

This truly is sad news for the whole Travolta family. While the near future is undoubtably going to be very difficult, I hope that everything works out for the entire family. RIP Jett and my feelings are with the entire Travolta family.

Very sad to hear of anyone losing a child through illness. I thank my lucky stars all mine are relatively healthy and robust.

My sympathy goes out to the Travoltas as one parent to another. I hope I never have to go through the pain they must be feeling at this time.

I cannot fathom the absolute grief of losing a child. It would destroy me. My prayers for the Travolta family that they can find peace in time.

That said, I have to mention that their Scientology beliefs also were a factor there. They took him off medication that prevented seizures. I hate to be critical of this after the fact, but the obvious question has to be asked---could it have been avoided as a result?

They have been strongly denying rumors that Jett suffered from autism, insisting instead that he suffered from Kawasaki Syndrome.

I have a friend with a Autistic son and I don't think Jett had it. On the news they showed a picture of him before the alleged incident with the carpet cleaner and he looked fine. I think things are very consistent with their story and that he came down with due to the carpet cleaner and it is Kawasaki syndrome. I don't think Travolt's belief in L Ron Hubbard would have made him not act prudently as to his son's health.

I disagree. There is a pattern of behavior among many Scientologists, including the tragic story of Lisa McPherson above, that indicates Scientologists DO in fact buy into the hairbrained nonsense peddled by L. Ron Hubbard, the criminal and lunatic, that make these cult members ignore reality and it does put their family members in harm’s way. This is a matter of documentable evidence that’s there for the viewing if you choose to examine it.

Fully agree. It's unfortunate, but the question does need to be asked and is more than prudent in the case of the Travoltas' personal tragedy. What decisions did they make based on their beliefs that negatively affected their son's condition? Given this is their loss, surely those questions will be raised by those most intimately involved, so beyond this comment, I'll stay out of it.
