Iron Maiden unveil new ‘Ed Force One’

Ed Force One

The pioneering metal band will be travelling in style for their ‘Book of Souls’ world tour next year. The latest incarnation of Ed Force One, named after their faithful zombie mascot Eddie, is a custom Boeing 747 which is nearly twice the size of their previous 757. Frontman Bruce Dickinson, who has recently undergone surgery and has been declared cancer free, is currently training to be able to fly the jumbo jet. The tour is expected to visit around 35 countries including the band’s first ever concerts in China and El Salvador
