Elvis’ Jet Sits – Waiting For You – In Roswell, NM
You drive to Roswell, New Mexico. First, you'll have to visit the Roswell International UFO Museum and Research Center in downtown Roswell. Next, maybe you'll take a few hours to visit the Roswell UFO crash site which (according to KRQE.com) is opening to the public for the first time.
And finally, you'll have to find the airport where the jet you bought online is sitting. It's not just any jet. It's a 1962 Lockheed Jetstar that once belonged to Elvis Presley. It's in rough shape, so it's gonna take some time to refurbish the plane to what it looked like when Elvis flew in it. The previous owner paid $430,000 for this plane last year and then let it sit on the same tarmac where it's been, for almost 40 years.
You won't do that, will you? No. No, you won't.
You'll bring it back to pristine, flyable shape and then take it to airshows, where you'll charge people to get onboard and have their photo taken with an Elvis look-a-like.
At least, that's what I would do. Good luck.
