Flight 666, the call sign he uses when piloting Ed Force One. Not cool. Not funny.

Seen this plane decal at Gatwick airport it was awesome

With a light sky, this just would not have done it. Wonderful contrast. Took a photo of this plane myself today over the Essex Coast. It had a small jet flying alongside most of the time.

The weather on the tails seems to be the same as the weather coming from the background

Nice!

Great dark sky background with lots of foreground interest.
Not sure what the cement mixer is for though!

What a lucky passenger(the British one)

A few years back i was on an Astreaus flight, Not this particular plane though. This is what came over the tanoy at the start. "Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen this is your First Officer speaking my name is Bruce Dickenson....." My jaw almost hit the floor!

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 18, 2009:
Iron Maiden rules! I went to 3 shows on the Somewhere Back In Time tour (one was the LA stop where the plane actually was piloted by Bruce himself) and they were all awesome. Too bad they probably wont do another Ed Force One tour because this plane is awesome. Cant wait to see the Flight 666 DVD.

There goes the siren that warns of the air raid,
Then comes the sound of the guns sending flak.
Out for the scramble we've got to get airborne,
Got to get up for the coming attack.

Jump in the cockpit and start up the engines,
Remove all the wheelblocks there's no time to waste.
Gathering speed as we head down the runway,
Gotta get airborne before it's too late.

Running, scrambling, flying,
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again.
Running, scrambling, flying, Rolling, turning, diving,
Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die.
Won't you run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high!

Superb livery for Astraeus! Btw, Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson himself is a captain for Astraeus. But I wonder if he will pilot the flights during the world tour..

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun December 23, 2007:
And your pilot is......... Bruce Dickinson, singer of the band who is a certificate pilot and and F.O. flying for Astraeus

" Run to the hills, Run for your life " This is a great livery, and a great idea for promotion a band. After this one, more will come.
