Jump in the cockpit and start up the engine… you’ve just boarded Flight 666. The captain and lead singer, Bruce Dickinson didn’t have to quit his day job to go on tour with the band because he also pilots the ‘tour bus’ between shows.

Iron Maiden‘s tour bus is a Boeing 757-200 from Astraeus Airlines painted with Eddie, the band’s mascot and the Maiden logo. This 757 is a literal tour bus in the sky. Carrying 75 people including band and crew, plus up to 12 tons of equipment. The tour plane has allowed the band to perform more concerts in more countries on one single tour then ever before.

The “Final Frontier World Tour” hit 26 cities in 13 countries for 29 shows… that’s a major achievement. You can experience the tour and the maiden voyage of Ed Force One, sans the jet lag on the band’s Flight 666 Documentary.
