Vinnie Barbarino, Cleared To Land

Tue Mar 12, 2002 10:40 am

Can I get more info on John Travolta's "fleet"?

I know at one point he had a de Havilland Vampire.

Now I think he has 3 Gulfstreams and of course his B-707.

Does he still have the Vampire or his Lear(s) and are there any pics of them?

I remember reading that he has had at least two emergency landings. One involving his Gulfstream and the other the B-707. I think the later was an engine failure and he had to land at Logan, with an escort of course.

Long live Vinnie Barbarino!

In Travolta's film, `Look Who's Talking' (with a baby that `talked' with Bruce Willis' voice).... he flew a small exec. jet...was almost a fighter-trainer. Any ideas?
Looked like a BAC Strikemaster or Aeromachi or Piaggio somesuch...

I know it was just recently reported that he bought/is buying a Qantas 747SP. Not sure what the status is.

I recall that about ten years ago, Travolta was at the controls of his G-2, and lost electrical power over the east coast near DCA. He declared an emergency and landed at DCA. From what I have read, he always has an experienced pilot in the right hand seat when he acts as PIC.
