Those who believe the greatest rock ’n’ roll legend still lives should enjoy plenty of sightings at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni next week during Friendship Day 2005.
Friendship Day is an opportunity for Americans to host Japanese friends on the base for an air show and plenty of entertainment, base officials say — including the Ohio-based E Team sky divers, all to be dressed as Elvis Presley as they flutter down to the airfield from about 5,000 feet.
In addition, Elvis impersonator Prentice Chaffin will sing and gyrate on the main stage near the flight line...
Base officials recommend that visitors refrain from bringing any large bags or containers to the gate, “because the security examination of the contents slows down the crowd” waiting to enter the air station, Coakley said. “Anyone attending Friendship Day is also subject to random searches.”
