Description: English title: 'The Planes and The King'.
As an Aeronautical Engineer, and a big fan of Elvis Presley, Carlos always wanted to write a book about the Airplanes and the King. Since his very first visit in Graceland, back in 2001, he has been extremely intrigued by Elvis's history with his aircrafts, and his link to aeronautics in general. Observing the imposing flying machines exhibited at Graceland as testimonies of the greatness of the artist of the century, led him to think at that time... 'there must be something more behind this story'. And boy! That there is a great story! 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 kept in his personal archive. After several years of accumulating material, he decided to entrust myself to this humble project, putting into words what he was able to compile about my two great passions: Elvis Presley and The Aviation. This humble work of research is intended for any fan of the King who wants to know more in detail about this hidden and enigmatic Aeronautical facet of Elvis, and for all those aviation lovers that are intrigued by the singer's bond with the exciting world of Airplanes. First print runs 100 copies. An extended English version (with additional photographs and text) was released in 2022.
