I thought the eagle was here in the states at some point.

Anyway, I want to know, what's cheaper:
A) making a new eagle for the states and storing it here;
or
B) transporting the eagle to the states

Of course, most of the stages they play on in the states cannot accommodate the damn bird anway.

I'd say it would be cheaper to transport the eagle to usa , if saxon were able to play bigger venues there im sure they would bring the eagle, it is a great bit of kit and well worth seeing, i just wish we could see it more in uk , its only been used twice in about 17 years

Hey, I've got a cheaper way of getting an Eagle back at the gigs!!

The band could get a willing participant dressed up in an eagle costume with a few fairy lights attached and fixed to a suspended harness. then at the right moment they could be "flown" out above the crowd with their arms outstretched. It could rival Kate Winslet in Titanic

I know I've not been taking my pills again
