Iron Maiden: John McMurtrie Photographic Book Coming Soon; "On Board Flight 666"
As most fans know, Maiden’s official Photographer John McMurtrie has been on the road with the band since Ed Force One first took to the skies back in January 2008, capturing not only the "Somewhere Back In Time" World Tour but also the current "Round The World In 66 Days" leg of "The Final Frontier" Tour. We are pleased to announce that this extensive coverage is soon to be made available in the form of a glossy, hardback Iron Maiden photographic book.
Tentatively entitled "On Board Flight 666 " it will be published by Orion Books later this year and will feature hundreds of stunning photos which give an exclusive, behind-the-scenes pictorial documentation of the tours. Many of the images will be accompanied by captions, allowing the reader a first-hand glimpse into life aboard Ed Force One and its groundbreaking exploits on this intimate visual journey into the world of Maiden.
