Air Atlanta Icelandic B747-400 TF-AAK which is on lease to Legendary Rock Band 'Iron Maiden' jetted into Adelaide arriving from Melbourne at 14.45hrs as 'Atlanta 666'. The aircraft is scheduled to continue on to Perth on 13/5/16

As seen in the pictures above, the aircraft is painted in the livery of the legendary bands tour scheme 'The Book of Souls. Adelaide is the 34th stop on their tour around the world. This is not the 1st time Iron Maiden have painted up a n aircraft, back in 2011 they painted up B757 G-STRX which visited Adelaide on 10/2/11.

This is TF-AAK's 1st visit to Adelaide, it is also the 3rd ever TF- registered aircraft to visit Adelaide (certainly not a common Prefix in this neck of the woods.)
