Travolta donates Gulfsteam jet to Georgia's Aviation Hall of Fame

WARNER ROBINS, AFB, Ga. -- Actor John Travolta has donated his Gulfstream jet to the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame near Macon to be placed on public display during April's large air show.

Warner Robins spokesperson Chrissy Miner confirmed to this aerospace reporter that Travolta's twin engine aircraft arrived on the air base on Wednesday, and will be donated to the Hall of Fame's museum.

"It's on the flight line," Miner stated with a big smile.

Travolta's G-2 Gulfstream executive jet is being donated in honor of his son, Jett, who passed away in 2009.

"The aircraft will be on static display only during the air show", Miner added, "and not open to let the public inside."

The white G-II aircraft can accommodate up to fourteen passengers with a range of over 4,000 miles.

The air show is open to the public and free of charge, and will feature the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels during the weekend of April 28 and 29.

Miner also added new information that the F-22A Demonstration Team will also soar over Warner Robins during the spring air show.
