Elvis Week to Feature Concerts, Auction, Candlelight Vigil


Now, however, another one of his jets, that was previously a tourist attraction at the Roswell International Air Center in New Mexico, is being auctioned off. However, the plane has no engine and the cockpit has not been restored.

"Mom said 'Can you image flying around sitting on red velvet seats?' But it is Elvis to a T", said Cynthia Thompson, who was born in Roswell.

This is the "Lost" jet he owned with his father, Vernon Presley. The value of the plane ranges from $ 2 to $ 3.5 million, and the auction will be, according to GWS Auctions Inc, on May 27 at a special event with several celebrity memorable. "This jet has the potential of being fully restored, and placed on exhibit for the world to come see".

Elvis' former private jet goes up for auction. McKay says when he purchased the red 1962 Lockheed Jetstar it had a two-toned gray interior and "kind of looked like a casket".


When it comes to Elvis Presley memorabilia, this one takes the biscuit. There has been enormous curiosity as to who the current owner of Presley's airplane is, but his name has not been released to the public.

He says Federal Aviation Administration records show no interior changes were ever made to the jet. The winning bidder will also receive original paperwork signed by Presley himself, which details his design plans for the plane, which is nothing short of iconic.

Presley was born in Tupelo on January 8, 1935, and moved to Memphis with his parents at age 13.

Presley died on August 16, 1977 at age 42 in Memphis.
