Take a guided tour of Ed Force One

The band's Boeing 747 tour plane features branded décor and what looks like enough seats for every band member, roadie and groupie

By IQ on 08 Jun 2016

Aerospace company Boeing, the manufacturer behind Iron Maiden’s jumbo jet, Ed Force One, has released a video offering a rare glimpse inside the aircraft.

Piloted by lead singer Bruce Dickinson (pictured), the Boeing 747 is designed to carry the band, up to 10,000kg (nearly 10 imperial tons) worth of equipment and, as seen in the video, an air crew decked out in Ed Force One-branded uniforms.

The band’s latest tour, The Book of Souls, kicked off in Fort Lauderdale in Florida in February and will conclude at Wacken Open Air in Germany on 4 August. It was very nearly derailed by an accident involving Ed Force One on the ground at Santiago Airport in Chile in May, but the plane was fixed up and in the air again a week later.

Watch the video above.
