Travolta Plane Emergency -- Pulp Fiction?

4/5/2007 5:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John TravoltaRemember that supposed emergency plane landing that left John Travolta "shaken" last week in Ireland? Turns out it wasn't really a case of "Stayin' Alive."

The actor just released a statement to TMZ which dismissed the incident. "Thank you for your concern," says Travolta. "There was never an emergency. It was just a fuel stop and when we went to depart, the #2 engine needed a new starter." Reports from England had suggested that one of the engines malfunctioned mid-flight, and that the emergency landing was a close call.

Travolta -- and his Boeing 707 jet -- are both fine, in case you were wondering.

Oh, he'll be dead via plane crash, just like John Denver and JFK Jr. Give him time.

Mr. Travolta has come a long way from the old "Sweathog" days! He has proven himself to be a verstile actor. Have you ever seen the awesome job he did in the movie "Faceoff?' He is not only excellent at acting, he and his wife Kelly are great humanitarians. Read up on the work they have done in Ocala, Florida....as well as areas recently hit by tornadoes. You really should save your name calling for the 10 year olds you obviously hang with, and wishing someone dead will only come back to haunt you personally! Shame on you!!

my opinion    

He would not admit it if it is true due to insurance and his next film. Anyone who has a risky hobby runs the chance of not being cast in movies due to the exhorbitant rates. Flying your own 707 is a risk. Smart of him to deny everything.

Sounds just like routine maintenance on the aircraft. The part I can't understand is, why all the vicious comments? The guys worked hard, and now he can enjoy a few tid-bits in life.

As a retired airline pilot, do any of the readers have any conception what it takes to fly a 707?
Trust me, Mr. Travolta had to go through many hours of training and vigorious FAA check flights to pilot the 707. In the business we call it a type rating.

Again, flying is not saturday night bowling, it took many many hours to achieve the ratings Mr. Travolta has.

He's Boring now    

#8 That dirtbag only gave 15 thousand dollars for that Hurricane relief in Florida. Hes a has been and a double talker...especially when it comes to the environment so he can fly around huge privately owned jets for he and his family...and I imagine his cult buddies.

He's no actor..every part he's played he's played himself...a new jersey crybaby who learned a few dance steps like they all did back in the 70's....disco duck turned hubbard wannabe.

If it wasnt for Tarrentino casting a couple of has been actors in weird roles this guy would still be doing those awful baby movies.

Double chinned overstuffed now gay man hiding in Scientelogy.

I like Travolta, he seems like a nice guy. However, this picture of him sticking his tongue out like a frog is unflattering as hell. Dont you have a better picture of him than this?

CURIOUS    

gosh! i never seen anyone that's 50 with out wrinkles and botox shots. botox must be ruining the hollyweird industry since directors can't get authentic facial expressions from the actors.
