It looks like Elvis Presley's airplanes are staying at Graceland after all.

Graceland released a statement today saying the Lisa Marie and the Hound Dog II, two custom-designed airplanes once owned by Presley, will permanently remain at the Memphis tourist attraction centered on the life and career of the late singer.

The announcement ends confusion about the future of the airplanes, which had been owned by a company named OKC Partnership after Presley died in August 1977. OKC Partnership had received approval on Tuesday from the Memphis City Council to move the airplanes to another location just down the street from Graceland.

Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, said on Twitter that Graceland now owns the planes and they will remain at Graceland "4 ever." She did not elaborate.
