I think Travolta got a new plane

This tail number used to be the eclipse.

The eclipse tail number apparently changed or just another elcipse going to Greystone. (17FL)

Or the person filing did not use the phonetic alphabet when filing.  D and E sound alike, and the Eclipse is pretty new to the briefers.

Yeah, thats what I mean Jennings.  When the pilot was filing he probably was unclear on the type aircraft and tail number.  The pilots need to be clear and use phonetic alphabet when filing with a briefer.

Or you could just file with a website like fltplan.com and you'd be golden.  But we're starting to get a bit off topic here.  Anyone heard him flying around lately?  Either in this jet, the gulfstream, or the boeing?

Well I think he goes into St. Petersburg alot because of the world headquarters of the Church of Scientology in Clearwater.  As far as I have read he is a scientologist so there is a good chance you will hear him if you know hes flying into St. Petersburg, which he does quite a bit in the eclipse, you can hear him on www.amfly.com.  Click on the live atc

Well seeing as he isn't able to bring the 707 into 17FL anymore, you will catch the eclipse doing ferry runs back and forth. He's been known to fly to PIE, buy groceries, and fly back to 17FL...
