For 30 years, tourists have paid money to get a look at two aeroplanes once owned by Elvis Presley at Graceland in Memphis. But by April of next year, the planes named Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II could be gone.

Elvis Presley Enterprises, which operates Graceland, has notified the planes’ owners that they should prepare to remove the jets early next year.

The planes, owned by the OKC Partnership in Memphis, have been a tourist attraction since the mid-1980s.
