HERPA IRON MAIDEN SOMEWHERE BACK IN THE WORLD 757-200 HE535250 1:500
Pioneers of the British heavy metal scene, Iron Maiden are the most successful band in their genre. Founded in 1975, Iron Maiden are a global phenomenon, having performed in over 60 countries around the world. For their three last tours, the band and crew have been touring in specially branded aircraft. Nicknamed “Ed Force One” after the band’s mascot Eddie, each aircraft sported a design of the album and corresponding world tour. Pilot was none other than lead singer Bruce Dickinson himself, as he was also a commercial pilot with the charter airline Astraeus, the owner of the Boeing 757 aircraft used on their 2008 and 2011 tours. With a mummified “Eddie” on its tail, Ed Force One transported the band to 90 concerts for the Somewhere Back In Time Tour in 2008 and 2009. A documentation of the tour, titled “Flight 666”, with the 757 in a major role was shown in cinemas worldwide. This Die-cast metal model airplane comes in 1/500 scale with landing gear no stand. Model is approximately 3 ¾ inches long with 3 inch wingspan.
