Was late October 1974 when Elvis used that plane?

As far as I can tell from the very brief references to this, Elvis borrowed Hugh Hefner's plane to travel to and from several concerts. It was a black DC-9. Since Elvis did not purchase his own airplane until 1975 (the Playboy jet was used in October 1974), I suspect he simply borrowed it for convenience.

She said he was a groper and it sure looks like she was right!

It means he couldn't keep his hands to himself.

I doubt many complained.

It's not Kathy, and it doesn't look like "groping" to me.

This photo is from Las Vegas in 1969, and the woman with Elvis is country star Jeannie C. Riley.
