The planes, ‘Lisa Marie’ and ‘Hound Dog II’, have been on display at Graceland since the mid-1980s, having been purchased after Presley’s death by Memphis company, OKC Partnership.

It was previously reported that OKC were attempting to move the planes to a new location elsewhere on the street, launching an independent exhibition and outdoor display in the process. However, Presley’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley has confirmed via Twitter that the planes have now been bought by Graceland and will remain there “4 ever”.
