An Iron Maiden show is always an epic production, and their recent set at Download in the U.K. was no exception.

To kick off the proceedings, the metal heavyweights had a Spitfire fighter plane zip over the crowd at Donington Park in Leicestershire before they ripped into “Moonchild” from their 1988 album Seventh Son of a Seventh Son.

Check out the flyby and some fan-shot video of the performance below and visit Iron Maiden’s official website for more information.
