Tue Apr 30, 2002 4:00 am

John Travolta bought a 747 from Qantas today.

Thought this would be nice news, just a little gossip

Regards,

Greg

Not ECB, but I think he wants a Combi, so that leaves ECC I guess, otherwise prob EBS

Yeah, he is buying one of Qantas' old SP's. It was in a previous post, so search for it.

SixStarAnsett,

I actually wouldn't be surprised if he buys SNA so he has a place to store his planes.  Big thumbs up

He was contemplating a QF SP however the sale fell through and both aircraft are now being broken up in Arizona. He was in Sydney two weeks ago and visited the QANTAS Jet Base to look over a 238B that QF are getting rid of, presumably the purchase would be of one of them not a SP.

Wouldn't it be cool if he plastered his face on the tail? Not how he currently looks, but a Vinnie Barbarino one, complete with the 70s feathered hairdo?  Big grin

That is a scary thought. I vote for Mrs. Kotter on the, um, tail.

However cool a classic 747 is (I'm glad he didn't get an SP, those things are ghastly) if I had enough money to burn to buy planes, I'd look for not only a good plane but also a very very sexy looking one. After all, he's not running an airline and doesn't probably care about what the most efficient plane is, and in that case, nothing can beat the following in pure looks:

A 727 with winglets... like the ones Panam has...

ooooh!!!!

A B-727-225A, stripped down to bare metal, and pained in Eastern Air Lines livery.

Now THAT'S one sexy aircraft!  Big grin

Sorry for the typo and the double-post! I tried to edit before it went, and clicked when I shouldn't have.  Big grin

Yeah the SP's were scrapped, so that deal fell through. Can't wait to see the 742 though!
