Iron Maiden Land in Toronto

No, this isn't a review of last night's Iron Maiden show at the Air Canada Center (although blogTO did review a previous show here in 2005). This one is more for the Toronto plane spotters out there.

blogTO reader and aerial photographer extraordinaire Tom Podolec sent us these awesome photographs of Iron Maiden's customized flying tour bus, which is actually piloted by the band's frontman Bruce Dickinson, landing at Pearson International Airport. Even if you don't like the music, you have to appreciate how cool it would be to literally fly around the world, leading your band.

For those of you that are into the band, check out Chart Attack for a review of last night's show.

More photos of the plane after the jump...
