The actor and pilot, 56, often fuels up at the airport while en route to his home in Islesboro, off the Maine coast. It's unknown if he was in the cockpit when his dogs died.

Airport director Rebecca Hupp told the AP her deepest sympathies are with the Travolta family.

In January 2009, Travolta and wife Kelly Preston's 16-year-old son, Jett, died after suffering a seizure at the family's vacation home at the Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island.
