Iron Maiden make first ever movie

'Flight 666' follows the band's 2008 tour

Iron Maiden have announced details of their first ever feature-length documentary, to be released in cinema’s worldwide on April 21.

‘Iron Maiden: Flight 666 – The Movie’ follows the band’s 2008 ‘Somewhere Back In Time Tour’, which saw them play to nearly half a million fans across the world.

Camera crews were given exclusive access to the band, and footage includes singer Bruce Dickinson flying a specially customised Iron Maiden jumbo jet to each destination.

Despite singing at 23 shows in 45 days, Dickinson also piloted the Boeing 747 – christened Ed Force One – for much of the trip.

The band’s crew and equipment also travelled on the plane.
