For 30 years fans have been able to visit two planes once owned by Elvis Presley at Graceland; Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II. Fans enjoy touring the planes as they visit the home that was once owned by the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley.
By April of 2015, the planes may be gone. As reported by My FOX Chicago, Elvis Enterprises, which operates Graceland, has written to the planes' owners saying they should prepare to remove the jets from Graceland by next spring. OKC Partnership and Graceland agreed to bring the jets to Graceland. The agreement called the OKC Partnership to receive a cut of ticket sales in return for keeping the planes there.
Elvis Presley fans not only in the US, but across the world have a right to voice our opinion and WE DO NOT WANT THE PLANES REMOVED. Fans from several countries visit Graceland every year and part of our visit is touring the planes once owned by Elvis Presley. We believe it is not in the best interest of his estate or fans.
This is totally wrong for the EPE to do this. But, It's ALL ABOUT THE MONEY AND WHO CAN AFFORD TO VISIT GRACELAND AND SPEND MONEY ON THE ATTRACTIONS THERE! When you visit there you spend around $30.00 per ticket and then food, gifts, museums, on the grounds. And then you stay at the Hotel there across the street for, let's say three nights. during the ElvisWeek in August, During Chirstmas and then in January for his birthday events. Now we are up to over a $1,000.00. Give or take and then you take a tour ride to either Tupelo, MS or Memphis to see Sun Studios and walk on Beale Street.. And then you and your family return back to the hotel at Graceland for last minute shopping and leave on the fourth day to return home. Now if they move the planes to the airport then they can get more money to sell more tickets to an attraction that is off site and the fans will pay more for the trip to it and then pay more to get to go inside and then buy more gifts. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE BIG DEALS AND THE MONEY.
The Graceland experience ! Is too see ELVIS home & his beloved grave site. & HIS PLANES!! Who ever thought of removal of these planes needs to have there IQ checked !!!
Again the Elvis Fan is getting the shaft in the growing interest of GREED at Corporate EPE Headquarters! Who the hell do you think provides the green for you now EPE? Since the inception of Elvis Presley Enterprises the Fans have supported you, worked for you, raised millions in charitable donations to be given in the name of Elvis Presley and this is the thanks they get for that devotion! Since the fans were so rudely kicked of their site the Elvis Insiders in favor of the ridiculos name of the Graceland Insiders last week and they were not even asked for their opinion. And do you know why you did it with no comments after the decision was made? Because you knew the fans would be outraged! It is disgusting how you are treating the fans that where so devoted to you over the years. Many saved for years to spend just one week at ELVIS' Graceland and take in the events of Elvis Week, to tour the muesums, the planes, etc. Many are working hard right now in hopes of coming to Memphis for Elvis Week 2015, but what will they see? Surely nothing Elvis because you will have stripped his name from everything! You have awakened a sleeping Lion EPE!
