April 27 (TravelAndy): Rock and roll icon Elvis Presley’s two airplanes — Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II — will remain at Graceland in Memphis permanently.

Graceland, which was the home of Elvis, is now among the most-visited private houses in the US with hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.

Lisa Marie, Elvis’ daughter after whom one of the planes was named, said on Twitter: “The planes will remain at Graceland 4 ever!”

“The planes are ours…they will remain at Graceland,” Tweeted Elvis’ former wife Priscilla Presley.

The two custom-designed planes, which have been in Graceland since 1984, are popular with visitors to the museum.

The fate of the two planes had become uncertain last year with Elvis Presley Enterprises deciding to remove them from the site. The decision had angered fans.
