Iron Maiden 757
Astraeus Air's 757-23A that's painted in the special Iron Maiden livery is in town as AEU666. The flight arrived around midnight from Nadi.
The jet named "Ed Force One", G-OJIB (c/n 24292), is taking the band on its "Somewhere Back in Time World Tour 09". Lead singer Bruce Dickinson is also a 757 captain, and is reportedly piloting some of the flights.
Amusingly, this is the 666th post for the HNL RareBirds blog ... kinda appropriate huh?
A big mahalo to team member Aeros for taking the photos above.
