Milo High: One of Elvis’s former pilots, Milo High, has passed away. High flew both the Hound Dog 1 and was co-pilot to the Lisa Marie. Elvis paid $250,000 in 1975 for the 96 seat, four engine plane Lisa Marie and spent over a half a million dollars more to have it stripped & customized to include a lounge with suede sofas and leather-topped game tables, a conference/dining room with leather recliner chairs, a sitting/guest bedroom, a master bedroom with a queen-size bed, and a fully equipped galley, and two half-baths with 24K gold-flecked sinks. Television, video and stereo systems, sky phones and gold-plated seat belt buckles were among the other appointments and accessories. Elvis employed a full-time crew of four for his plane including pilot Milo High.

From Graceland, he ordered them all a specialty sandwich named Fool’s Gold because of its outrageous price -$49.95. Elvis’ plane touched down at 1:40 am in Denver and taxied to a private hangar. The owner of the restaurant personally brought Elvis and his party the order of twenty-two loaves on silver trays along with a case of Perrier, a case of champagne and a chest of cracked ice as requested. Elvis, his friends and the crew feasted on board then headed back to Memphis…
