IRON MAIDEN's Plane Is Back In Action!
Iron Maiden's new plane that it was using for The Book Of Souls tour got pretty heavily damaged in a Chilean airport earlier this month, which sucks not only because it screwed the band up a little bit, but also because of all the hype surrounding the badass aircraft!
Fortunately, according to a rather extensive Facebook post you can check out below, the band has announced that the plane is back in action and will rejoin the group on tour! Bruce Dickinson had the following to say.
“The speed and thoroughness of this incredibly complex operation was stunning and we are so very pleased to get our plane back! We would like to thank Air Atlanta and their terrific rescue team for a fantastic effort in achieving this in the time they did, and to Boeing, LAN Chile. ACS and Rock It Cargo for all their invaluable support. We are sorry though for our fans in Cordoba, Buenos Aires, Rio and Belo Horizonte who missed out seeing the plane, but we hope they enjoyed the concerts as much as we did."
Here's the full release from the band, complete with pictures!
