John Travolta again manned the helm of a Haiti-bound Boeing 707 Monday, visiting the country for the second time in the wake of the deadly 7.0 earthquake, armed with four tons of medical supplies, ready-to-eat military meals and a group of doctors and ministers from the Church of Scientology.
“We have the ability to actually help make a difference in the situation in Haiti and I just can’t see not using this plane to help,” Travolta said Monday before commandeering the flight from Tampa, Florida to Haiti.
The A-list star, who was accompanied by wife Kelly Preston on Monday’s trip, publicly thanked Qantas Airlines and company head Alan Joyce for their helping hand in the rebuilding efforts.
“Alan is allowing me to fly the Boeing 707 that’s sitting in the backyard, fill it with supplies, fill it with doctors, fill it with volunteer ministers, and take it down to Haiti on Monday — so thank you, thank you, thank you,” a gracious Travolta told the Associated Press.
Travolta’s next film, From Paris with Love, hits theaters February 5.
