Iron Maiden Spitfire Pilot Amazed At Fan Response
Squadron Leader Andrew Millikin passed three times above 90,000 fans at Donington Park on June 14, with Maiden launching into classic track Moonchild – without the long intro – as the WWII fighter plane banked up over the main stage.
And although he's used to staging flypasts in the Spitfire Mk16, registration TE311, he says it was a unique experience. "This was something completely different. There's been a lot of interest from fans who attended," Millikin tells the Horncastle News. "I'd never have thought that a bunch of metal fans would be interested in RAF craft – but I've been proved wrong.
"It was fantastic to fly over. I get goosebumps every time I see the Spitfire in the air, so I can't imagine what it was like down there." More including video of the flyover.
