The Iron Vulture is a large airship belonging to Don Karnage.


An airship of titanic proportions, the Iron Vulture belongs to the fearsome Sky Pirates of Don Karnage, who plunder the skyways at will from their fortress-like flagship. Even the largest cargo planes pale in comparison to this enormous vessel. A quarter mile in length, the Iron Vulture is without doubt the largest airship ever built — as well as the most infamous airborne vehicle in history. Like a vulture, she swoops out of the sky to prey upon the defenseless and unwary. Her ominous profile is a familiar and dreaded sight to cargo pilots.

Behind the scenes

The Iron Vulture was created in 1990 in Plunder and Lightning. A version of it appears in the DuckTales 2017 universe.
