'Pan Am' Will Take Off in John Travolta's Boeing 707 This Week
John Travolta might not be any use to KFC, but he does have something that the producers of Pan Am want.
In the pilot episode of the hit ABC show, Long Island's Republic Airport filled in for a Cuba airstrip, and this week it will play Haiti for a scene in an upcoming episode.
The cast and crew will spend three days (October 26-28) shooting night scenes on the airport tarmac, which are to be taking place during a 1960's coup.
They'll also be using a special aircraft for the shoot: John Travolta's Boeing 707. The plane normally sports the Qantas Airlines livery, but, for the scenes, will be covered in a vinyl wrap bearing the Pan Am markings.
The plane was expected to arrive at the airport yesterday, but so far there's been no word on whether or not Travolta delivered it himself.
