John Travolta posts rare photo of his 8-year-old son in cockpit of airplane – The Sun

JOHN Travolta has revealed a rare photo of his 8-year-old son pretending to fly a Qantas Airplane.

Sporting a pilot's cap and sitting next to another child, Ben looked happy to be sitting up front and posing for Travolta, a well-known aircraft enthusiast.

Ben is pictured leaning towards the instrument panel, filled with hundreds of buttons and a seat that appears to be double his size.

His proud dad, 65, described the occasion as his son's "first A380 @qantas flight."

The American superstar actor wrote: "My son Ben is taking my place," in an Instagram post on Saturday, November 9.

"Following in Johnny‘s footsteps! Love this!!," Travolta's wife Kelly Preston, 57, proudly wrote in a separate Instagram post featuring the same photo.


Ben will have big shoes to fill if he takes up aviation or chooses to purchase a Qantas Boeing 707 like his father.

Travolta became a Qantas Airways ambassador in June 2002, where he earned his 747-400 "wings" after extensive training, according to the Qantas Airline's website.

Qantas caught Travolta's attention as a child when he learned it "flew the longest routes in the world."

There is no feeling in the world quite like flying an airplane.

On National Aviation Day, Travolta confessed his love for aviation in another Instagram post.

"There is no feeling in the world quite like flying an airplane," he said.

Despite his love for planes, it's clear to see Travolta is enamoured with his wife, as they just celebrated their 28th wedding anniversary in September.

The long-standing celebrity couple share a daughter, 19-year-old Ella Bleu and late son Jett who tragically passed away in 2009.

He died at the age of 16 after suffering a seizure, while on a family vacation to the Bahamas.
