In 1975, Elvis purchased his first plane that he named after this daughter, "Lisa Marie." It originally seated 96, but after his customizations, it sat 28, although there were generally only about 10 people aboard. The inside of the plane looks like an apartment with a seating area, a conference room, and a privage bedroom with space for a inflight reading library.
 
The bedroom is customized with plush sleeping quarters; a custom-made queen-sized bed; an executive bathroom with gold fixtures and wash basin; a video tape system linked to 4 TVs; a stereo system with 52 speakers; and a conference room finished in teak wood.
 
On the tail of the plane is painted his motto TCB, which stands for Taking Care of Business, along with a lightning bolt.
