Heavy metal group Iron Maiden's plane damaged in Chile

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — English heavy metal band Iron Maiden said Saturday that the group's airplane was damaged in an accident in South America. A statement on the group's website says the accident occurred when the plane called Ed Force One was tethered to a tow truck in Santiago, Chile early Saturday to be taken for refueling before continuing over the Andes to Cordoba, Argentina. A steering pin evidently fell out during the movement and left the aircraft without steering.
Iron Maiden's statement said the plane suffered a collision when it made a turn, injuring two workers on the ground. They were taken to a hospital for treatment. The band said initial reports show that the plane's engines suffered major damage and will need repairs or even replacement.
The band said it's making other arrangements to get its members and equipment to Cordoba, where the next concert is scheduled. It called its show in Chile was a success.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
