John Travolta’s two dogs killed in tragic Bangor airport accident

In a tragic accident, John Travolta’s two dogs were struck and killed on the tarmac of Bangor International Airport last week.

In an email obtained by Bangor Daily News, the city released the following statement:

“At approximately 1 a.m. on Thursday, May 13, 2010, an airplane carrying members of the John Travolta family landed at BIA. While there, two small dogs were taken for a walk by someone who is not a family member. An airport service pickup truck was approaching the airplane to service the airplane and did not see the dogs. Unfortunately, the dogs were struck and killed. The airport is investigating the accident. Out of respect for the family’s privacy the city will make no further comment.”

Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston own a home on Islesboro, a Penobscot Bay island town in Waldo County, Maine.
