Elvis Presley was famous for much more than just his incredible musical career and unique voice, which wowed crowds all over the world.
He was also a master in both fashion and cooking (blue suede shoes, anyone?)
It’s possible that some individuals are unaware of the rock star’s expertise in design. Consider the well-known private jet of the King of Rock as an example.
In 1962, Elvis Presley purchased his own aircraft and had it customized to his tastes.
The space’s opulence can already be seen in the carpet, mahogany paneling, and crimson velvet chairs.
Up until his death in 1977, Elvis didn’t fly the Lockheed Jetstar model airplane he had owned for over three decades. It was later placed as a tourist stop on a road close to Roswell, New Mexico, in the United States.
However, a telephone bidder who claimed to be an Elvis fan just paid $260,000 for the jet in a Florida auction.
The plane was carrying both Elvis Presley and his father, Vernon Presley, when it first broke through the clouds.
After Elvis tragically passed away more than three decades ago, the plane is still in the same place in New Mexico. You may observe that the plane’s exterior has a subtle red hue if you pay close attention. The aircraft, though, is in surprisingly good condition given its age.
Take a look inside… Simply told, I don’t mind taking this plane for a lengthy flight. I had a clear vision of what the King of Rock would look like.
The walls are paneled with wood, and the seats are upholstered in sumptuous crimson velvet.
The seating appears to be of great quality, and there is plenty of room for individuals. Behind the main room is a modest kitchen.
Take the microwave as an illustration. Given how ancient it is, I strongly doubt that it is still functional. Imagine Elvis standing up, walking into the kitchen, and popping the fabled Elvis sandwich—a combination of peanut butter, mayonnaise, crispy bacon, and banana—into the microwave. Abandon the past!
Go to the restroom! Naturally, there ought to be more velvet and a nicer sink. This is a breeze in comparison to the claustrophobic cabins on charter aircraft.
