Elvis' Private Jets To Remain At Graceland

Mon Apr 27, 2015 3:02 am

I remember the discussion about this last year; It looks like it is settled:

Statement: Elvis Presley's airplanes, the Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II, to remain at Graceland

I've never been there and was afraid I'd never get the chance to see them in person. Time to take a drive down.

The Estate should make an agreement with the Smithsonian. If Lisa Marie's kids, or whoever gets Graceland as their inheritance, decide to sell, the Smithsonian should get First Refusal, if not outright control of the aircraft and/or Graceland. I mean, if the King and his Lands aren't embedded in American culture, I don't know what is.

About 10 or 15 years ago Lisa Marie Pressly sold most of Graceland, she kept about 10 %.

Quoting jfk777 (Reply 2):

Lisa Marie sold 85 percent of Elvis Presley Enterprises, including all its physical and intellectual properties, basically all the rights to his name, music, movies and Graceland, but Lisa Marie still owns the mansion itself and all of her fathers personal effects, which she has said she will never sell.
