Iron Maiden Singer Pilots Soccer Team

Bruce Dickinson is not just the front man for one of the most successful Hard Rock bands on the planet.  The Iron Maiden member is also a licensed commercial pilot. He has spent time at the controls of a plane Astraeus Airlines custom outfitted for the band during a couple of Iron Maiden world tours.  Dickinson describes the plane, which is large enough to carry the band, all of its touring equipment and road crew members, as being '...like the biggest tour bus in the world.'
Thursday (10/21) Dickinson was in the cockpit of a plane taking off from John Lennon Airport in Liverpool transporting the Liverpool soccer franchise to a match in Naples, Italy.  The singer professes not to have a favorite soccer team, but said he hopes the Liverpool squad, which is having a rough season, gets insipred during the flight for their match against Napoli.
