Elvis Presley's Lisa Marie Airplane

Elvis' Lisa Marie
Elvis Presley purchased this aircraft a few years back and had extensive interior changes made.  The "TCB" logo on the tail has become known world-wide as well as the aircraft's registration number N880EP.  Elvis named this plane after his daughter, Lisa-Marie and it is now open to the public across from Graceland.

This postcard was printed in 2003 and postmarked in 2015 with two USA stamps.  One of them is an Elvis stamp!

The sender (Postcards and Road Trips) writes:
I've been to visit Graceland but have never toured the jet.  Sadly, the two jets that Elvis owned, "Lisa Marie and "Hound Dog II" were offered up for sealed bid auction.  I hope they stay at Graceland, no matter what!
