Iron Maiden aircraft Ed Force One was in a tragic accident this morning, on its way to getting refueled for the Argentina trip. On moving, the steering pin connecting the airplane to the ground tug, seemingly fell out, causing the vehicle to take a turn with no steering, thus colliding terribly with the ground tug, damaging the undercarriage, two of the aircraft’s engines and two of the ground tug operators, both of whom are hospitalized at the moment. Fortunately, the tons of equipment for the concerts in Cordoba and Buenos Aires had not been loaded onto the plane before its crash and have thus remained unharmed. Contingency arrangements are currently being made to ensure safe transport of the band, crew and equipment for the upcoming shows.
