Video: Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson Leads WWI Dogfight Reenactment

0

Because Iron Maiden are arguably the most theatrical band in all of metal (which is really saying something), and because Bruce Dickinson is a skilled professional pilot with a serious passion for aviation, and because they’re rich and they can afford to do shit like this: Dickinson led a reenactment of a World War I dogfight prior to the band’s performance at the Sonisphere earlier this month.

Prior to the show, Dickinson asserted that “The maneuvers we’ll be performing are all based on true-life battles from a hundred years ago.” Although the performance wasn’t entirely historically accurate: I don’t think any WWI pilots were wearing Trooper beer patches. I could be wrong about that, though. It’s been a long time since I covered this stuff in high school history class.
