Elvis Presley's plane to be sold at auction

ROSWELL, New Mexico (NBC News) - A plane that once belonged to the king of rock and roll is going on the auction block.

The 1962 Lockheed Jetstar that once belonged to Elvis Presley has been sitting in a Roswell, New Mexico airport for more than two decades.

Roswell residents, who are used to other famous encounters, has no idea Elvis' plane was located there.

"It was real hard for me to believe," said Sylvia Murphey, a lifelong Roswell resident. "I had never heard that. That was the first time ever! Lots of things have landed here in Roswell, but that wasn't one of them. "

The plane will be auctioned in Las Vegas next weekend, where it could sell for up to $2 million.
