CLOSE CALL FOR TRAVOLTA

Actor John Travolta's plane was forced to make an emergency landing at Logan International Airport on Sunday after an engine overheated and shut down, an airport official said.

Travolta's private Boeing 707, carrying the actor and seven others, was forced to land about 3:30 p.m., Logan spokesman Phil Orlandella said.

It wasn't clear if Travolta, a licensed pilot, was flying the plane, Orlandella said. He said Travolta left on another plane soon after the emergency landing.

The plane had been flying from Los Angeles to Bangor, Maine, where Travolta regularly lands when heading to his island home in Isleboro, Maine, about 30 miles south of Bangor.
