Does anyone know what planes certain celebs have? John Travolta has a 727, but I don't know anymore! Any help?

ex rapper MC Hammer had a 727-200 and the Bacstreet Boys chartered a specially reconfigured 767-300 or 200ER for six months. The Pope flew TWA twice once in the early 90s with a specially reconfigured 747-100 and had also chartered 2 L-1011s for reporters, dignataries, etc. The Pope flew TWA again; This time in a specially reconfigured 767-300.

I saw the John Travolta 707 a few weeks ago when I visited Mohave. It was getting ready for departure. I think it was white with a blue stripe.

I don't know what type of plane it was in, but I heard on the radio recently that John Travolta personally flew a woman he met in an airport when she couldn't get a flight to see a dying relative.

Travolta has 1 707 and 5 GV's. These planes are normally used by the Church of scientology! The church of Scientology also uses Tom Cruises citations.

Harrison Ford has many planes. His GV is actually fractional ownership. But he has a Beaver, a 206 a A-36 a light twin (which he went of the runway with) a helicopter (which he crashed while doing autoroation) and 1-2 other planes. Mr. Ford used to shop in the pilot supply store I worked in, so we shared many flying stories.

Patrick Swasey had a C-414 (N414PS) However he made an emergency landing (which was really not needed), and rumour had it he had been drinking at the time.
