Fly In An Iron Maiden Plane- With Bruce Dickinson As Your Pilot!

If you hate or are afraid of flying, I have some news for you that might just change your mind. What if you flew in an official Iron Maiden airplane and had frontman Bruce Dickinson as your pilot? If you’re still with me after reading that, read on for more information!

Not only is Dickinson the vocalist for one of the best bands in the world, he’s also a licensed commercial airline pilot. He is currently flying for Iceland Express (IEX), which is a discount airline. They have just added the Iron Maiden plane, which might I say is sick! The plane is a Boeing 757, and was named Ed Force One. The plane is decked out- with the Iron Maiden artwork and logo from the Final Frontier world tour. I so want to fly in this awesome plane!

The plane won’t only be flying to Iceland, despite the airline name. It will only be flying a portion of the summer routes, in addition to daily routes to and from New York, Chicago and Boston, starting this month. “The summer route to Winnipeg will continue through 2011. It will also launch a new route from Edinburgh to Reykjavik and USA.”

According to Noisecreep:

We’re extremely pleased that Iceland Express is associated with such an amazing band which formed over 30 years ago, has held around 2,000 concerts, and sold about 80 million copies of their albums. I am positive that this collaboration will be great fun and who knows, maybe [Dickinson] one day sing to his passengers on-board, IEX managing director Mattías Imsland said in a press release.

I love New York City and it is great to fly there — even better to fly there on the same Boeing 757 that we just flew around the world on our Final Frontier tour, said Bruce Dickinson. I think it is very cool that the colors of the Iron Maiden livery have stayed on the plane, which of course was named Ed Force One by our Iron Maiden fans.
