I'm not sure who ejected this, but they obviously aren't metal. \,,/,

I think Iron Maiden goes on tour just so Bruce can get some big iron flight time! :-)

change of flight number for return from Nassau, my bet is the band was hanging out there. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/ABD667/history/20160224/2000Z/MYNN/KFLL

Amazing number of people out today to watch Ed Force One, sometimes I think I am the only geek around and get surprised.

Private jet. It's not a Lear or Falcon, it's a Boening 744/L!

actually, I guess it's a weird sort of 'wet-lease'
Ha! Sounds better for Iron Maiden to have a 'wet-lease' anyway!

Saw plane at airport in Ft. Lauderdale before the show, awesome!!! That is the way to travel if you are going to 6 continents and have tons of freight! Interestingly enough, earlier on the day of the show they flew it to Nassau (half hour) and back to pick up bassist Steve Harris who lives there. That had to be an expensive pickup, you think they would have sent a Lear instead. No wonder ticket prices are so high!

So that's why the plane flew to Nassau! Thanks for the info

Pretty cool....Saw Iron Maiden for the first time in 1981..Had no idea Dickinson was a aviator until a year ago.
