Priscilla Presley To Fans: “Calm Down” Over PlanesBy: Lacy Langley - July 24, 2014
Priscilla Presley is doing her best to keep Graceland running and to keep the memory and presence of Elvis Presley alive. Insane amounts of fans flock to Graceland in Memphis, TN every August for Elvis Week to remember The King and get an intimate look inside of his glamorous life.
However, some things may be changing for Graceland soon and Priscilla Presley has been taking some heat for those apparent possible changes.
These changes that Priscilla Presley is dealing with have to do with Elvis’ two airplanes that he used, The Lisa Marie and The Hound Dog II.
Elvis Presley Enterprises informed the owners of the Lisa Marie and the Hound Dog II, OKC Partnership, to prepare to remove the planes when their agreement ends next April.
OKC Partnership bought the planes after Elvis died, and agreed later to keep them at Graceland. In return, they would get a share of ticket prices.
This announcement of the planes’ removal is what set off die hard Elvis fans, some of whom went on to attack Priscilla Presley on Facebook for the actions.
