It’s not every day that Iron Maiden comes to town in their custom jet! I had the opportunity to watch the 747-400 “Ed Force One” arrive in Denver yesterday afternoon. For those of you unfamiliar with the jet, it’s piloted by the lead singer of the band, Bruce Dickinson, who’s a licensed commercial pilot.
