Iron Maiden Singer Flies Airlift from Lebanon

You may or may not know that Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickenson is a licensed commercial pilot with Astraeus, a charter airline.  That’s a whole other story.  Let’s just accept for the moment that the lead singer of the heavy metall band is a licensed commercial pilot (he’s technically a first officer).  Turns out he’s also a good guy.  Dickenson flew a rescue flight on a 757 from Cyprus to London to airlift British citizens who were trapped in Lebanon.  Let’s see Ozzy do THAT!  And yes, feel free to insert your Bruce Dickenson/Cowbell jokes here.
