BN leased 707s from QF in the 70s?

I understood that BN leased 707-138s from QF in the 70s (?) and that one of these is the one flown by John Travolta. Can
someone confirm one way or the other? Thank you

There were four, but I believe they were purchased from QF in 1969. One of them is Jett Clipper Johnny.

Correct. It was originally VH-EBM, the last B707-138B delivered to Qantas in 1964. Sold to Braniff in 1969. Became John Travolta’s private B707.
