Welcome to the Elvis Presley Directory.


Elvis' 1962 Lockheed JetStar's New Life: Great news that after sitting in a New Mexico desert for close to 40 years, Elvis' Lockheed jetStar has been reloacted to Tampa Bay, Florida.

Now Elvis' 1962 Lockheed JetStar is being stored in Plant City by owner James Webb of “Jimmy’s World” on YouTube, who bought it for $234,000.

He told the mdeia, “The airplane itself is flipping cool, even without the obvious connection, but if you add in the Elvis connection, there’s no rock ‘n’ roll star bigger than Elvis, in my opinion".
The jet was transported from Roswell, New Mexico, to Florida, traveling more than 1,600 miles.
Webb is known for buying planes and giving them new life while documenting the process on his YouTube channel.

He said the jet will be transformed into an RV to tour the country and raise funds for charities, such as St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

“We’re going to be able to create such a unique, Elvis-type of experience that the whole world would get to enjoy. Even more than if it was flying or stationary at Graceland,” Webb said.

The 1962 red Lockheed JetStarOne which Elvis purchased in July 1976 (via a trade-in on his previous investment in a Dessault-Falcon airplane) for $840,000 and used it to cart his TCB band and colleagues on tour to concerts and appearances across the country. It eventually became the center of a long drawn-out FBI investigation "Operation Fountain Pen" where Elvis and Vernon were swindelled in an aircraft refurbishment deal.

Untouched since Elvis owned it, the jet is the only plane once owned by the legendary singer that is privately owned. Two other Elvis owned planes, including the Lisa Marie are displayed at Graceland.
