For decades, Iron Maiden has been a crew of pioneers in heavy metal, so it should come as no surprise that the band continues to literally pilot its own plane. The English rockers perform at the Pepsi Center tonight on their current The Book of Souls World Tour, and landed at Denver International Airport today.
However, Iron Maiden is more metal than merely rolling in first class. The band maintains its own 747 — an upgraded version of the band's first aircraft, "Ed Force One." The first plane, a 757, "wasn't big enough" and has been piloted by Bruce Dickinson.
This is the updated and upgraded Ed Force One.
