Ed Force One

Ed Force One is a wonderful customized Boeing 757 owned by the British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, used to transport the band, 60 member crew and 12 tons of equipment as they tour the world. It’s named after Iron Maiden’s infamous mummy mascot “Eddie” and is piloted by Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson.

Here’s a Fox News report featuring a tour of Ed Force One and interview with Bruce.
