Jet Airliner was released by The Steve Miller Band on April 30th in 1977

Jet Airliner became The Steve Miller Band's fourth US Top Ten hit

Jet Airliner was recorded in May of 1975

at CBS Studios in San Francisco California 

and appeared on the band's Book of Dreams album

The single record edit of Steve Miller's recording

features a truncated version of the guitar introduction

One line of the song's lyrics was altered for radio play...

Instead of "that I don't want to get caught up

in any of that funky shit goin' down in the city"...

It was changed to "funky kicks"
