Since November 1, 1968 it was withdrawn from use and stored engineless at Sydney Airport.
The same year in June it was already cancelled from the Australian Aircraft Register.

He was born and raised in New Jersey, and was the youngest of six siblings.His first major role was Billy Nolan in “Carrie,” alongside Sissy Spacek. After writing my last blog post about John Travolta’s 707, I became interested in the history of this classic airliner. Ladys & Gentlemen fasten your seatbelts, the history of the John Travolta Boeing 707.His 707-138B was built in 1964, constructed at Boeing Seattle and has Boeing Construction Number 18740 Line 388. Travolta first became enamored of aviation as a child.He observed the flight paths of the nearest airports, read books on aviation, and took special interest in Constellations, DC-6s and DC-7s.Attesting to his early charisma, he persuaded the girls in his neighborhood to don their Brownie uniforms to play flight attendants as he “captained” his backyard airliner. It’s registration number became VH-EBM “City of Launceston”.
