MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Two airplanes once owned by Elvis Presley, the Lisa Marie and the Hound Dog II, could be moved from Graceland to a location down the street under a plan approved by a county board.

The Shelby County Land Use Control Board approved the plan Thursday from the planes' current owners, OKC Partnership.

The planes have been situated at Graceland since the mid-1980s. Elvis Presley Enterprises, which operates Graceland, has asked OKC Partnership to arrange for the planes' removal from Graceland on or shortly after April 26.

The Memphis City Council must approve the plan. If they are moved to the new location, the planes would be part of an outdoor display and museum for tourists to visit.
