The Planes And The King

June 25, 2021 | Book

Carlos Varrenti published his book 'Los Aviones y El Rey' ('The Planes and The King'). The 198-page Spanish hardcover book documents Elvis' link to planes, including his own airplanes, the Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II'. 

There is a possibility this book will be released in English on a later moment.


As 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 auironatics 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. 

The book is available through Carlos R. Ares Argentinian Elvis Shop: Elvis.shop@gmail.com

The only thing interesting about this book is the cover. Pass!

"The 198-page Spanish hardcover book documents Elvis' link to planes". Please tell me this is a parody of vacuous Elvis Presley fan fodder...
