Iron Maiden's plane is back in the sky after being damaged in Chile

Damaged plane

Iron Maiden's Boeing 747 is ready to fly again after being badly damaged on tour.

Ed Force One had to have two of its engines replaced after a collision at an airport in Santiago earlier this month.

Getting the plane back in the sky has not been easy.

Each replacement engine had to be flown thousands of miles across the world. But the band says their "beloved" plane will now rejoin the tour in Brazil.

Getting the plane fixed sounds like a military operation.

Two huge replacement engines were found in Germany and other parts were sourced in Saudi Arabia. The engines weigh 5,000kg each.

The whole lot then had to be flown 7410 miles to Santiago. Specialist engineers were then flown in from around the world.

Work began at the weekend to fix Ed Force One.

When the plane arrives in Brazil, it will once again be loaded up with the band's 20 tonnes of equipment and jet off for the rest of the Book of Souls World Tour.

Bruce Dickinson is Iron Maiden's singer and also flies the plane.

"The speed and thoroughness of this incredibly complex operation was stunning and we are so very pleased to get our plane back!" he said.
