Iron Maiden Shows Off Brand New 747

CARDIFF, Wales (CelebrityAccess) — Ahead of their forthcoming world tour, metal legends Iron Maiden have revealed the latest iteration of their branded airborne 'tour bus.'

Dubbed Ed Force 1, the full-sized Boeing 747 is fully personalized with Iron Maiden livery, including a full list of the band's forthcoming "Book of Souls" tour dates.

The plane will be flown by the band's frontman Bruce Dickinson, who is a fully licensed pilot and formerly made a living flying for a now defunct British airline.

The group's tour kicked off on February 24th at Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.’s BB&T Center, with additional dates in North, Central and South America before wrapping up the Americas leg on April 16th at The Forum in Los Angeles. – Staff Writers
