Yes, this is Iron Maiden 757. It is on lease form Astraeus airliens and the band paint it with their mascot on the tail. Bruce Dickinson, Iron Maiden's lead singer is a 757 captain in Astraeus staff (when he is not on stage). The band is making a 2008 world tour and it is using this plane to carry equipment and personnel, and Bruce Dickinson is at the left seat. When the tour is over, de 757 will return to Astraeus fleet.

Hey its Eddie! Its great to see Iron Maiden's symbolic mascot on the tail of a 757. Long live Maiden, up the Irons!

A visitor from Canada posted Mon March 3, 2008:
I don't believe my eyes! its eddie maiden,the 80's British metal/hair band, Iron Maiden's mascot! The band featured this deathly character on all of their album covers in some crazy way shape or form. My question is,what the heck is he doing on the tail of a 757?!?!?!

I'm scared

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 3, 2008:
For those rare, but unaware... this is Bruce Dickinson's airplane, official airplane of Iron Maiden (he pilots for the airline in free time).

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 3, 2008:

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 3, 2008:
Good, clear shot, but what an ugly scheme. What was the airline thinking?! That is a positivley repulsive picture.

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 3, 2008:
I'll answer my own question...yes this is Iron Maidens 2008 World Tour Plane. The pilot will be lead singer Bruce Dickinson who is an airline captain flying for Astraeus Airlines.

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 3, 2008:
Nice photo. Was this Iron Maiden's tour plane?

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 3, 2008:
Isn't that Eddy?, I am pretty sure this is Iron Maiden's airplane.

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 3, 2008:
Iron Madden really is taking over the world, and there starting with the airlines apparently! Nice capture of an interesting plane!

A visitor from Ireland posted Mon March 3, 2008:
Rock band 'Iron Maiden' must use this aircraft for touring, they also have the benefit of their lead singer Bruce Dickonson who is a fully qualified airline pilot to fly it. He also can be seen on a programe on TV about aviation called 'Flying Heavy Metal'.

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 3, 2008:

A visitor from Germany posted Mon March 3, 2008:
Heavy Metal like it should be! Looks damn good...

A visitor from Spain posted Mon March 3, 2008:
