Some Fun at Domodedovo

I saw Ed Force One parked at the Domodedovo airport in Moscow yesterday.

Ed Force One is Iron Maiden's tour airplane, piloted by the band's singer, Bruce Dickinson.  Mr. Dickinson is a commercial airline pilot while not busy with rockstar duties.

The "Ed" in "Ed Force One" refers, to Eddy, the band's mascot for the longest time.

Iron Maiden was one of 1980s more successful heavy metal acts with inspiring album titles like "Killers" and "Dance of Death."  Ed Force One is an aging (and discontinued) Boeing 757 - a befitting airframe for quinquagenerian rockstars, way past their prime.
