These three original flight log pages are from Elvis' Captain, Elwood David's flight log book that was auctioned in 1994 "blue book" page 38 lot number 1252.
These original flight log pages from that log book are very important, Two of them associated with Elvis' famous CBS shows.
Elwood David was Elvis Presley's personal pilot from August 1975 until Elvis passed away in 1977. Elvis' plane was a Convair 880 that he christened the 'LISA MARIE.' Elvis customised the inside of the passenger jet and used the plane for travel both on tours and personal jaunts. After Elvis passed away Elwood David stayed with the plane and was the private pilot for the Presley family until Vernon Presley sold it in 1978.
