Iron Maiden Frontman Makes Emergency Airplane Landing: Iron Maiden News

(hennemusic) Iron Maiden frontman and experienced pilot Bruce Dickinson made an emergency landing at the RAF Halton base this past week when his replica WW1 Fokker Triplane started to run low on fuel.

The Bucks Herald reports Dickinson diverted his plane into Halton, where RAF personnel were on hand to refuel the historic plane. "We applaud Bruce Dickinson's decision to divert to RAF Halton rather than press to his destination with potentially low fuel," says Squadron leader Gary Coleman, officer commanding operations squadron at RAF Halton.

"To see such a well-regarded pilot, and world-renowned rock singer, make this decision is great for our student pilots to see. It makes them realize that anyone can find themselves low on fuel due to unforeseen circumstances and that the right decision is to divert.

"He really does have a magnificent Fokker Triplane, so it was a pleasure to provide it with a home for a few nights until we sent him on his way." Read more here.
