Iron Maiden Plane Is Now Available As A Model Kit


Iron Maiden Bruce Dickinson

Bosses at top model manufacturer Revell have produced a scale Ed Force One kit, allowing devotees to craft a mini-replica, using a tube of glue.

But the model aircraft is a bit of a blast from the past - as it's a replica of the plane Maiden flew around the world in during their 2008 tour.

The band's current plane, which is piloted by frontman Bruce Dickinson, was recently grounded following a runway accident. The craft is now back in the skies.

The plane, named Ed Force One, was being refuelled at Santiago Airport in Chile on 12 March (16), when it collided with a tow truck. The incident caused serious damage to the undercarriage of the Boeing 747 and left two employees hospitalised with non-critical injuries.

None of the band members, their equipment or road crew were on the plane at the time of the accident, and after undergoing repair work, the aircraft returned to the skies on Tuesday (22Mar16), taking off from Santiago Airport to rejoin the rockers in Brazil, where they are currently performing.

In an updated posted on the band's website, frontman and Ed Force One pilot Bruce DICkinson expressed his thanks to all engineers who helped to get the plane back in working order.

The plane, named Ed Force One, was being moved to refuel when a mechanism controlling the aircraft fell out, causing it to roll away and crash into the tow truck. The two airport employees have since been hospitalised and are expected to make a full recovery. None of the band members, their equipment or road crew were on the plane at the time of the accident.

"Ed Force One was this morning tethered to a tow truck to be taken for refuelling prior to flying over the Andes to Cordoba for the next show," read a message on the band's website on Saturday. "On moving the steering pin that is part of the mechanism that connects the ground tug to the aircraft seemingly fell out. On making a turn the aircraft had no steering and collided with the ground tug badly damaging the undercarriage, two of the aircraft's engines and injuring two ground tug operators, both of whom have been taken to hospital.

"We hope of course that they make a full and speedy recovery and we will be closely monitoring their progress. The flight engineers are on site and evaluating the damage, but their initial report is that the engines have suffered large damage and will require an extended period of maintenance and possibly two new engines."

The British rocker has written half the tracks for the record and plans to finish off working on the new material while rehearsing for the band's 2016 world tour.

"I'm looking forward to getting stuck into some sensible rehearsals," Bruce tells Classic Rock magazine. "I may even sneak off and do some solo songwriting because I've got half of an album on the blocks...

"It could be a cool, relatively unchallenging way of pre-warming up the voice before I go into Maiden rehearsals. So making some noise that way first could be a possibility."
