I remember me a picture of Travolta with his prop and twin-tailed aircraft. In Airliner World I recently saw a pict of his B707 with the old TWA fuselage striping (but than in blue). My question: what aircraft does he has right now? Can you give me fleet update?
Does John Travolta has a website, where can I find this Grease-guy and where is he based as my wife told me to design a modest but recognizable livery for his fleet..... women....
While I have not liked all of his movies, I did like "Broken Arrow" and several others. Other than that why are we attacking him? He is a fellow aviation lover who has renovated a 707-100 and is now looking to purchase a 747 and do the same thing. Isn't this what we want, to see the older birds flying? Thanks John.

Despite what some may say about John Travolta's acting ability, he is also an accomplished pilot. He owns a Gulfstream II and and is type-rated in the airplane. He was in the left seat on a flight when they lost all of the electrical systems and obviously brought it back successfully.
Expratt, Ah yes and it takes some extraordinary effort to "lose" all electrics in a Gulfstream. I think this "effort" was discussed a lot in Gulfstream pilot circles and FlightSafety training sessions.
To get back to the main topic here, yes it was reported in the media that when Travolta was in Australia last year promoting Swordfish, he became aware that VH-EAA was coming up for potential sale/disposal. However, I am unaware of any further reports that the sale of this aircraft would actually be going ahead to him. Considering that there are many -SP aircraft which have been retired over the years, its interesting as to why there would be such an interest in buying this one?
