    Elvis flew in Tuesday night ....


    Is "in Tuesday night" correct? How about "on Tuesday night"?

    Re: in Tuesday night

    It's Elvis (flew in) Tuesday night. The other possibility would be Elvis flew in on Tuesday night.

    Re: in Tuesday night

    It's a shorter way to say Elvis flew in to town on Saturday night.
