Original descriptionAs an Aeronautical Engineer, and a big fan of Elvis Presley, I always wanted to write a book about the Airplanes and the King. Since my very first visit in Graceland, back in 2001, I've been extremely intrigued by Elvis' history with his own airplanes, and his link to aeronautics in general. 

His impressive airplanes, exhibited at Graceland as testimonies his greatness, made me realize that there was a story to be told here. And boy, what a great story it was!

This is how for several years, every little detail, every short paragraph in a book, every short video, every photograph, every little note or information related to Elvis and his airplanes, was always marked and added to my personal archive. After a few years I had enough material to write the story behind The king and his planes, combining my two passions. 

This book is written for fans of Elvis and people interested in planes and aironatics in general. Fans who want to know more about Elvis' bond with his airplanes, or in-depth details behind the hidden and enigmatic aeronautical facets of Elvis Presley.
