Interesting article on the proliferation of "Airparks" ...

http://fogonazos.blogspot.com/2007/01/airp...our-garage.htmlFrom the article: "John Travolta is qualified in several types of single and multi-engine aircraft, and has the highest pilot medical certification possible. His house is located immediately off the main airstrip, and is designed so his jets can taxi right up to two outbuildings connected to the main structure, which is shaped like a squat air-control tower. "He uses the 707 as the family van," says Jumbolair developer Terri Jones. "The Gulfstream is his sports car."bt

Cool article Braun. Since neither aircraft can be operated single pilot, I imagine John must have someone on call to fly right seat when he is using one of his jets?-John

Maybe urban legend, but I have heard that he had flown that thing sans co-pilot. Certainly illegal, but hey, he is John Travolta.

That is crazy. If he is ever incapacitated in flight, in that 707...well lets not even go there.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2310 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2 GB Corsair XMS 2.5-3-3-8 (1T), WD 250 gig 7200 rpm SATA2, CoolerMaster Praetorian case

Hi John...I would agree that he would need a right-seater. Perhaps he has a small motel 6 on the property for the layover crew to stay at? Nah...it would have to be a Holiday Inn at the very least! :)Cheers,bt

The 707 requires a crew of 3, the pilot, co-pilot and a flight engineer.
