The planes were the very first thing we saw that said “Graceland” to us. They are visible from the highway. I mean how do you hide a pair of jets?
We were actually allowed to walk all the way through the Lisa Marie, named for Elvis’ daughter, his only child.
There’s another one of those long sofas.
This plane was usually used for tours. It transported Elvis and his entourage from city to city. It was used for planned family vacations but one day the pilot was called in for an impromptu trip to Colorado from Memphis. Elvis realized that Lisa Marie had never seen nor played in SNOW! So the trip was made, Lisa Marie played and then they returned home a few hours later.
We also got to the bathroom on board.
In addition to the made from gold sink and faucets the buckles on the seat belts are also gold.
The King’s chair.
Green must have been his favorite color.
Elvis slept here!
Another bathroom and closet/changing room.
That concludes your tour of the Lisa Marie.
The smaller jet we were only allowed to enter in behind the cockpit and look into the body of the plane. It wasn’t nearly as elaborate as the larger plane. Colorful….that can certainly be said about it.
We are both wondering how they got these planes in the parking lot.
