The Lisa Marie, the newest craft in Elvis Presley's small air fleet, is at Memphis International Airport on November 12, 1975, getting final touches before being put to use for touring. The converted Convair 880, formerly used by Delta Air Lines, is named for the entertainer's daughter. It was bought for $1 million and it took another $750,000 to fix it to his taste in Forth Worth, Texas. While not as elaborate as some reports have had it, the plane should be quite comfortable for the Memphian and his personal crew.

While not as elaborate as some reports have had it, the plane should be quite comfortable for the Memphian and his personal crew. It has a galley with stove, refrigerator and coffee maker, a private bedroom with queen-size bed, a dining room with eight chairs, two sitting rooms, two bathrooms with gold-plated fixtures and a shower in one, plus 29 seats for passengers. It requires a pilot, copilot, flight engineer and stewardess. Elvis also will keep the Lockheed Jetstar (smaller plane at left), a 9-seater, for touring purposes. On tours, he will need to lease a third plane for back-up groups, equipment and wardrobes. The small propeller plane is not part of his ‘air force.’
