That's his place alright. He was chased out of the Daytona, Fl area because of the 707. Too much noise.

As for moving the 707 out of it's "car port" a tractor has to push it back and point it in the right direction before engine start.
Todays airliners can put the engines in reverse and back away from the terminal.

The "trees" you see are the tops of the trees growing off the edge of the asphalt.

A lot of money to maintain, run, refurb, repaint, but VERY little to buy in terms of today's coporate jets. In most cases, real good ones can be had for less than $5 mil. There is a desert full of them at Davis Monthan.

New Gulfstream V? well over $40 million new
New Bombardier Challenger Global Express? over $45mil
New Boeing BBJ? (Boeing Business Jet, a 737 in corporate clothing) $50 mil plus depending on interior options.
That Gulfstream GIV SP pictured probably at his house probably cost John about $20 million.

Another thread sent into a tailspin by cat..Gotta bring the religion into it

John Travolta was just in DC last week to MC the opening of the new air and space museum at Dulles airport. They did a great interview on the local TV station with him. He flew his 707 to Dulles for the event. They also said that he does have a Gulfstream (or Lear? I can't remember which). He came across as a very cool guy who has a great love for aviation. He knew the history of every plane in the museum. He talked about when he was a kid, they lived right in the flight path for Laguardia (sp?) and he would spend hours just watching the planes fly by and knew what type of plane each one was.

Nice crib, by the way.
