  • The Lisa Marie: a Convair 880 jet purchased by Presley in 1975
  • The Hound Dog II: a Lockheed Jetstar purchased by Presley in 1975
  • The Lockheed JetStar L-1329 (N440RM): purchased by Presley in 1976

Elvis Presley owned several private jets throughout his career, including the Lisa Marie, the Hound Dog II, and the “last” jet, which was a Convair 880 jet named the “Jungle Room.” The Lisa Marie was named after his daughter and was a Convair 880 jet. The Hound Dog II was a Lockheed Jetstar. Both the Lisa Marie and the Hound Dog II were customized with luxurious interiors and featured gold-plated seatbelts and a stereo system. The Jungle Room was also a luxurious jet, featuring a living room, bedrooms, and a bathroom.

The Lisa Marie was primarily used by Elvis Presley to travel to destinations across the United States for his tours and concerts. The jet was also used for personal travel and to transport members of his entourage. It was purchased by Presley in 1975 and was used by him until his death in 1977. After that, the jet was owned by a few different individuals and companies, and is currently on display at Graceland, Elvis Presley’s home in Memphis, Tennessee.

The Hound Dog II was purchased by Elvis Presley several months prior to the Lisa Marie, in 1975. It was a Lockheed Jetstar and was used by Presley for personal travel and transportation of his entourage. The Lisa Marie was purchased in 1975 as an additional jet, not as a replacement. Both jets were owned and used by Elvis Presley until his death in 1977.

In addition to the Lisa Marie and the Hound Dog II, Elvis Presley also owned another private jet, a 1962 Lockheed JetStar L-1329, registered as N440RM. This was the third and last jet purchased by Presley, and it was bought in 1976, which was a year before his death. This jet was the least flown of all the aircraft owned by Presley, and it was mainly used for short trips. It was also the least customized of all his jets, and mainly used as a backup aircraft.
