    "This is your captain, Bruce Dickinson...."

    "We'll be flying at an altitude of 30,000 feet, and Eddie will be back shortly to draw blood from your jugulars!"

    Talk about "Ace's High", huh?

    from blabbermouth.net:

    IRON MAIDEN Frontman Flying High - Aug. 11, 2003

    IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson recently spoke to Billboard magazine about his "second" job piloting 150-seat Boeing 737s for Astraeus Airlines in London.

    Dickinson, a pilot for some 11 years, logged between 600 and 700 hours in the air for the company last year, regularly jetting back and forth from London to such locales as Egypt, Iceland and the former Soviet Union.

    "When you're up at 41,000 feet at night, flying in the middle of Europe and you look down and you can see all these lights, and then you look up and you see more stars than you've ever seen before in your life, it's just amazing," he said. "You see the weather, you see thunder storms from hundreds of miles away. I get to see the best light show in the world."

    Dickinson says his interest in flying picked up in the mid-'80s, after IRON MAIDEN drummer Nicko McBrain got his pilot's license. But it wasn't until 1992, when he spotted a sign at a Florida airport advertising flying lessons for $35, that things changed.

    "In '93, when I left IRON MAIDEN for six years and embarked on a solo career, it did strike me that if the solo career didn't work out, I was going to be jobless," he said. "So I decided that I would go and do the airline pilot exams in Europe."

    Although IRON MAIDEN have no plans of retiring anytime soon, the singer foresees a time when he'll be flying exclusively.

    "When it gets to when IRON MAIDEN stops which it will do eventually I'm gonna have to do something until I'm 65," he said.

    Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.

    He looks so different out of the rock star gear...

    I'd like to be on one of his flights as well.

    I've been an Iron Maiden fan for quite a few years...I just never stated it on here.
