That would be funny if it wasn't true !

Cool livery. Eddie is kinda like what most of us will look after a career of hub-turns! LOL

Fly during the day, rock out at night. Not bad at all.

I'm sure this has been posted before, but here is Bruce and the A320

Bruce is the man, although like myself he has a funny accent to most of you!:D

I love the paint job but the company is not worthy of something so cool these days. 'Bend-over Brown' is about all they rate.

I was on a UPS layover in SJO and the band stayed at our layover hotel; I didn't even know it until we showed up at the airport the next day and found their 757 parked next to ours on the cargo ramp! At least I was able to get a few pics. Been listening to this band since 4th grade..;

The nose door says ETOPS on it. Wonder how they have ETOPS on a private bird??? Maybe its on someone's certificate, dunno. Curious though...

Bruce Dickinson, lead singer for Iron Maiden is also a captain with Astraeus Airlines the owner of the aircraft. The band leases it when touring and Bruce normally is its captain on those trips. :)

The aircraft is owned/operated by Astraeus Airlines (for whom Bruce is a Captain) and therefore Astraeus have ETOPS approval on their AOC.
