John Travolta donates jet plane in son`s memory

London: Actor John Travolta has donated a jet plane to the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame in honour of his late son Jett.

The 57-year-old and his wife Kelly Preston were left devastated in 2009 when their 16-year-old son died after hitting his head during a seizure while in the Bahamas.

And Travolta has decided to pay tribute to him by bequeathing a G-2 Gulfstream executive jet to the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame at the Museum of Aviation, reported Contactmusic.

Chrissy Miner, spokeswoman for Robins Air Force Base, said, "The plane is being prepared for a static display for an upcoming air show scheduled for April 28 and 29 and will then be towed to the museum."

Following Jett`s death his parents set up The Jett Travolta Foundation, a non-profit organisation which has given away approximately USD 56,000 since it was set up.

Travolta has two other children - Ella Bleu, 11, and 14-month-old Benjamin.
