The Hollywood star has used aspecial video message toexpress his excitement at bringing his donated Boeing 707to the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS) at Albion Park Rail.

“I can’t wait to see everybody at the Illawarra Regional Airport when we touch down in the 707,” Travolta said in the short video clip.

The video shows Travoltasitting at a desk next toa model of his 707, as well as him standing alongsidethe actual aircraftat Brunswick’s Golden Isles Airport.

The footage was released by Bendigo Bank’s Oak Flats andShellharbourbranches, a financial supporter of the 707 project, on Facebook just before Christmas.

”This is our Christmas present for you, to say thank you for your support,” the bank’s Facebook post said.

Earlier this month, Travoltaconfirmed he would fly into the Illawarra on the plane he’s donating to HARS.

HARS president Bob De La Hunty had flagged the plane wouldn’t arrive without Travolta–andthe movie megastarhas since locked in hisspecial appearance at the Illawarra Regional Airport.

Travolta and his vintage passenger jet will touch down at the airport some time in 2018 –the exact date is yet to be determined, but it is expected to be towards the tail-end of the year.

Mr De La Hunty said Travolta had indicated he would stay “quite some time” and was keen togo flying in “Connie”, the society’sSuper Constellation aircraft, while in town.

Travolta revealed he had gifted theex-Qantas plane – which bears the unique registration 707JT – to HARS in a shock announcement, made via social media, on May 27.

At the time, Travolta –a qualified pilot and Qantas ambassador – said the planeneeded “a lot of work to be restored to a safe flying state”.
