By The Associated Press

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) - Soaring into the great blue yonder cures John Travolta's blues."Aviation has always bailed me out of anything in my mind that is blue," the 54-year-old actor told reporters at the Experimental Aircraft Association's AirVenture, an annual aviation convention. "I can look through an airline schedule and brochure and cheer up."Travolta, who was 15 when he took his first flying lessons, said he has owned 17 different aircraft over the last 34 years. He now owns a Boeing 707, Eclipse 500 and Gulf Stream II.
