Orion Books has announced that the photographic documentary compiled by official Iron Maiden photographer John McMurtrie, entitled On Board Flight 666, will be published in the UK on October 20th, 2011.
John's unrestricted access has allowed him to capture exclusive images and moments both onstage and off, in over 300 photographs accompanied by his personal insights and anecdotes in more than 250 glossy pages of photographs
On Board Flight 666 charts the extraordinary journey of Iron Maiden in their specially customised Boeing 757, piloted by lead singer and airline Captain Bruce Dickinson. Travelling across 5 continents, twice around the globe to undertake two World Tours, John's pictorial odyssey maps their progress from Ed Force One's historic take-off in January 2008 on the groundbreaking Somewhere Back In Time Tour through to 2010/11's The Final Frontier World Tour in support of their fifteenth and most successful chart studio album to date, The Final Frontier (August 2010) which reached #1 in at least 28 countries.
With a personal foreword by Bruce Dickinson, On Board Flight 666 takes you up close with Iron Maiden as they circumnavigate the planet to play to their loyal legion of fans giving an inside look into what makes this band so special and so adventurous in their unique touring plans.
The hard back version of On Board Flight 666 is available now to pre-order on Amazon, Waterstones, Book Depository, Play or WH Smiths. Details of overseas editions will be announced when known.
