Inside Elvis Presley's Airplanes at Graceland

On April 17, 1975 Elvis Presley bought a former Delta Convair 880 jet airliner that he christened the Lisa Marie after his daughter. It became his Graceland in the sky after hundreds of thousands of dollars were spent customizing it to his particular style. Today, the Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II, two of Elvis' former planes, are on display at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.

Featuring plush sleeping quarters, gold plated seat belts, a videotape system linked to onboard televisions, and a stereo system with 52 speakers, there's no doubt that the Lisa Marie made flying fun for Elvis and his guests. Scroll down to explore the interior of these two airplanes.
