“Iron Maiden: Flight 666” is a film by Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn about the heavy metal band Iron Maiden documenting them as they traveled 50,000 miles around world in their “Ed Force One” Boeing 757 (piloted by Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson) during last year’s Somewhere Back In Time World Tour.
The Maiden tour plan was something that had never been attempted before on such a grand scale. Circumnavigating the globe, the band flew in a specially customised Boeing 757 airliner with their crew and 12 tons of music and stage equipment on board, playing 23 sold out stadium and arena shows in 13 countries in just 45 days, travelling 70,000km and performing to almost half a million fans.
The documentary will have it’s North American premier at SXSW Film 2009.
