Airline History Museum’s purchase of books remains a mystery
John Travolta appeared at a benefit for the Airline History Museum in 2007. Questions arose about the handling of the money not long after the star left town.
This week’s issue of The Pitch describes how the suspicions about Paul Sloan, the museum’s former executive director, eventually developed into a prosecution for felony stealing. Before the jig was up, Sloan told the museum’s supporters that proceeds from the Travolta event were used to buy aviation-related books and CDs that were distributed to schools.
