John Travolta has left Haiti after flying a jet full of relief supplies into Port-au-Prince.
The actor piloted his own Boeing 707 from Florida, packed with six tons of ready-to-eat military rations and medical supplies for earthquake survivors.
Travolta's wife, Kelly Preston, was also aboard, along with doctors and ministers from the Church of Scientology.
Travolta and Preston returned to Florida as soon as the supplies and passengers were unloaded.
Aid groups have been desperate to fly their own planes into the over-stressed airport in Haiti's capital. A U.N. spokeswoman says there are at least 800 planes on a waiting list for the airport, which can handle only about 130 flights a day.
Travolta says he did the same thing in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
