John Travolta’s 707 is at the Paris Air Show–but why?

Way, way, way in the background of the above pic taken while walking about the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget is John Travolta’s Boeing 707, N707JT. It is parked with some vintage jets away from the publicly-accessible static area, and thus no opportunity to pry further.

We do know Travolta loves aviation, and he did attend the 2007 Paris Air Show, in part to fly on a Super Hornet. N707JT was a regular visitor in late 2008 when Travolta was filming a movie in Paris. His jet was most recently spotted in Miami on 5 June.

Anyone know more?

Travolta became a Qantas ambassador in 2002 at the same time he completed 747-400 first officer simulator training. He flies N707JT, named Jett Clipper Ella after his children Jett and Ella. He and his 707 make regular appearances at Qantas events, including last November’s birthday celebrations for Qantas’s 90th anniversary, where the below photos were taken.

    John is living his life the way he and his family want. I’ll bet the bucket list he has is or has been complete. Forget the actor he is a good man.
