ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. — Military crews in central Georgia are preparing to move a jet donated by actor John Travolta to its new home in an aviation museum.

Robins Air Force Base officials said workers on Wednesday were removing the tail section of the Gulfstream G-2 executive jet in preparation for its move to the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins.

Travolta, who is a pilot, donated the plane in honor of his son Jett, who died in 2009.

The plane will soon be on exhibit in the museum.
