Ed Force One Damaged

Oh no!

(CNN)Iron Maiden’s personal Boeing 747 collided with a tow truck Saturday at an airport in Chile, causing major damage to the aircraft and injuring two airport workers on the ground, the band said.

The plane, dubbed Ed Force One, was tethered to a truck at the Santiago International Airport and was being moved to be refueled and prepped for the next flight.

“On moving, the steering pin that is part of the mechanism that connects the ground tug to the aircraft seemingly fell out,” the heavy metal band posted on itswebsite. “On making a turn the aircraft had no steering and collided with the ground tug, badly damaging the undercarriage, two of the aircraft’s engines and injuring two ground tug operators.”

    Wish Ed Force One would make a stop in Milwaukee at some point.

    Worlds biggest band that somehow is rarely played on radio or plays here.
