G-OJIB (cn 24292/219) Heavy Metal! Now in full Iron Maiden Somewhere In Time World Tour 2008 livery, with a nice Eddie tail. Seen about to do some engine runs. During the tour the 757 will be a combi with rear cargo hold.

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

A visitor from Canada posted Fri December 23, 2011:
Seen this plane decal at Gatwick airport it was awesome

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue February 8, 2011:
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.

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue January 25, 2011:
The weather on the tails seems to be the same as the weather coming from the background

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 visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue September 1, 2009:
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.

Two plane?

A visitor from Australia posted Wed September 24, 2008:
I have seen this plane at JHAS in Melbourne. Looks great and I was also told that one of them is a pilot and is a part of the flight crew.

Up the Irons! Last concert in Assen august 2008!!!!!

A visitor from Finland posted Thu July 10, 2008:
It's a shame that they had to remove those paintings

A visitor from Greece posted Tue June 24, 2008:
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!

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 11, 2008:
Great pic. ever sen a plane like this before.

A visitor from Finland posted Mon June 9, 2008:

Ain't this the best plane I've ever seen. The liveries are a masterpiece! Superb! The picture's great with dark sky on the background and all the action around the plabe itself.

Aces high, eh! :-)

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 8, 2008:
All hail the Maiden... Eddie The aircraft defines what Maiden is About.

Let he who have understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number. Its number is six hundred and sixty six. Awesome! Long live Iron Maiden!

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 3, 2008:
What of the coolest liveries ever put on a plane. The tail itself is a work of art 5*

That is the coolest airplane I've ever seen

A visitor from Singapore posted Sun December 23, 2007:
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

A visitor from Chile posted Sun December 23, 2007:

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun December 23, 2007:
Very nice against the dark background sky, like the painted fin. Is there a "Tail Gunner" on this 757 ? ;-)

A visitor from Venezuela posted Sat December 22, 2007:
This is truly heavy metal...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat December 22, 2007:
They're coming in Croatia with this one as well... can't wait to capture Adriatic sea with Eddie on a tail ;)

A visitor from Portugal posted Sat December 22, 2007:
" 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.
