Elvis Presley’s private jets to remain at Graceland

The singer's former home and museum have bought the items back

Two airplanes previously belonging to Elvis Presley will not be removed from display at the late singer’s Graceland home and museum in Memphis, Tennessee, as had been previously reported.

The planes, ‘Lisa Marie’ and ‘Hound Dog II’, have been on display at Graceland since the mid-1980s, having been purchased after Presley’s death by Memphis company, OKC Partnership.

It was previously reported that OKC were attempting to move the planes to a new location elsewhere on the street, launching an independent exhibition and outdoor display in the process. However, Presley’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley has confirmed via Twitter that the planes have now been bought by Graceland and will remain there “4 ever”.

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Elvis Presley impersonators are banned at a pop-up Presley-themed wedding chapel in Las Vegas. A new Elvis Presley exhibition recently opened in Las Vegas earlier this month (April 23), but the late singer’s ex-wife Priscilla Presley confirmed that there will be no impersonators. She said: “This is not a joke. The wedding chapel is not a joke… Elvis had a lot of dignity. Elvis had a lot of class. He was a beautiful specimen of a man.”

Elvis Presley songwriter Sid Tepper recently died, aged 96. Tepper penned ‘GI Blues’, ‘Hawaiian Sunset’, ‘New Orleans’ and ‘Puppet On A String’ for Presley.
