John Travolta Details Near-Death Aviation Nightmare

Actor John Travolta was in London on Nov. 23, where he presented his new short film, The Shepherd.

There's a reason why Travolta is so proud of this project.

He has a special connection to it.

Because of his own experiences, Travolta felt like he was the perfect person to star in the short film.

The production focuses on a pilot facing doom as his aircraft is about to go down.

Travolta claims that the story hit especially close to him because he once went through a similar near-death experience.

"The kismet of the project is, I actually experienced a total electrical failure, not in a British warplane but a corporate jet, over Washington, D.C.," Travolta said.

The incident occurred back in November of 1992, when Travolta was flying a group of people from Florida to Maine.

Luckily, Travolta was not short on experience at the time. The film star who is now age 69, has been a licensed pilot since he was 22 years old.

"When I read the book, it resonated more because of this experience I'd personally had," Travolta said. "I knew what it felt like to absolutely think you're going to die. Because I had two good jet engines, but I had no instruments, no electric, nothing."

As Travolta was reading the book that inspired the script, he remembers thinking "I have lived this."

In the short film, Travolta plays an older pilot who helps guide a younger pilot in a 38-minute story set during World War II.
