A tiny Scottish airport has been honored for being the only place in Britain visited by Elvis Presley. Prestwick International Airport has gone down in history as the only piece of UK soil touched by 'the King of Rock 'n' Roll'.
In March 1960, Elvis was flown from Germany back to the US, following a stint of military service, stopping-off at the airport on the way. On Saturday, the airport's managing director Tom Wilson was presented with a commemorative plaque, as the original backing band for Elvis called-in on their way to Dublin following a Scottish show. Prestwick airport is used to playing host to Elvis fanatics and even opened a bar called Graceland.
