Iron Maiden offer peek inside Ed Force One

Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson describes Ed Force One plane as “flying billboard” in video shot by manufacturers Boeing

Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson is featured in a video that offers a peak at the interior of the band’s Ed Force One plane.

It was shot by manufacturers Boeing as pilot Dickinson offered staff a guided tour of the aircraft.

Explaining the custom graphics, uniforms and branded accessories, he admits Ed Force One is a “flying billboard” and continues: “It’s the way to cause a fuss when you arrive.”

He adds: “Honestly, it’s such a beautiful aeroplane. It allows us to do a European itinerary on an inter-continental basis. It’s our time machine, our magic carpet.”

Iron Maiden continue their The Book Of Souls World Tour until August – including a headline appearance at the Download festival this weekend.
