In a FB post the President of HARS said:

“The Team in the US working on the 707 project has been catching up post covid. The attached photo (below) just received shows the aircraft cleaned for further inspections and we understand the pylons are almost ready to be reinstalled. There is still plenty to do but step by step HARS is showing that we can do this stuff as evidenced by our past achievements that few thought possible. The big question is WHEN? The answer is when it is safe and ready.”

The aircraft is former Qantas 707-138B VH-EBM – “the last of the hotrods” – and was donated by Mr Travolta in 2017.  


About was developed to provide everyone in the world a one-stop shop for everything related to airlines, formed by a team of aviation editors, who have forensically researched nearly every airline in the world.

Our rating system is rated from one to seven stars on safety – with seven being the highest ranking. Within each airline, you will find the country of origin, airline code, booking URL and seat map information. The rating system takes into account a number of different factors related to audits from aviation’s governing bodies, lead associations, as well as the airlines, own safety data. Every airline has a safety rating breakdown so you can see exactly how they rate.

Over 230 of the airlines on the site that carry 99 per cent of the world’s passengers have a product rating. Given that low-cost, regional and full-service carriers are so different we have constructed a different rating system for each which can be found within each airline. has information on over 30 types of aircraft from the latest Boeing 787 to the A380 and smaller jets.
