IRON MAIDEN Singer Enjoys Second Career As Pilot

September 8, 2002

IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson is hitting new heights in his second career as a commercial airline pilot, according to the Associated Press.

"It's a great job," Dickinson told The Daily Telegraph. "Nothing else compares."

Charter airline Astraeus confirmed that Dickinson, 44, serves as first officer on Boeing 737s flying between Britain and holiday destinations in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

"We have had IRON MAIDEN fans on board who, when they heard my name being announced as first officer, asked the hostesses if it was the rock star," Dickinson said.

"When told it was, they spent the flight with their jaws on the floor then ask if they can have a chat with me."
