Iron Maiden’s new 747, #EdForceOne, landed in Ft. Lauderdale on Friday afternoon! 

The band’s lead singer and pilot, Bruce Dickinson, made a perfect landing and after clearing customs, did a brief press conference with the media.

The plane left from Cardiff, where it was unveiled on Thursday, and we were informed by airport staff that it made a brief stop in Dubai so Bruce could do some "touch and goes."

Raw video of the landing and Bruce’s press conference below!
