WARNER ROBINS (AP).- Actor John Travolta plans to donate a jet plane to a museum in central Georgia.
Robins Air Force Base spokeswoman Chrissy Miner says the actor will donate a G-2 Gulfstream executive jet to the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame at the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins.
Museum officials say Travolta, who is a pilot, is donating the plane in honor of his son Jett, who died in 2009.
Miner tells the Telegraph newspaper in Macon (http://bit.ly/KYnzY) the plane is now in central Georgia. Plans call for the jet to be used as a display for an upcoming air show planned for April.
