Special Iron Maiden Livery

It has been quite a while since we last wrote about Bruce Dickinson and his big jet. As you learn from that article, celebs often fly themselves as pilots. Bruce Dickinson, the lead singer of Iron Maiden for example is an official pilot for a UK based small charter airline called Astraeus.

Now the famous rock band Iron Maiden is again up for something fresh and new. They are on their new “Somewhre back in time” tour. Well, this is nothing special so far, is it?

The big thing is that now fans can join the band on board their tour jet – with Mr Brucwe Dickinson himself as first officer on it, fly with them to the scene of the next concert, stay at a hotel and fly back together with them the next day. The funky thing is that the whole package costs only £349 – £399 depending on the scene.

The aircraft itself has a special Iron Maiden livery with the skull known from the album cover on the tail of the Boeing 757. You can book your flight on the special charter with Captain Bruce Dickinson on now. You can read more on Iron Maiden’s official website.

John Travolta, Bruce Dickinson, Roman Abramovich – celebs with big jets

When we hear the phrase “private jet” we normally think about small planes like the one in my avatar. A Gulfstream or a Learjet. Most celebrities like Brintey Spears, Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, Madonna or Paris Hilton own such smaller planes. But here are some of those enthusiasts who need big thingies.

Jon Travolta's houseLet’s start with the most famous celeb known for his crush on Jumbos: John Travolta. Mr Travolta has an official pilot license. When he needed to collect flight hours, he worked free for Qantas. He flew a Jumbo. Now he owns one of these aircrafts and he parks it right in fornt of his house. He lives in a place called Jumbolair, north of Ocala, Florida. Some years ago he lived in a fly-in community near Daytona, but he was sued by neighbors who found his jets too large and noisy. His new home is basically a small private airport. His passion for aircrafs is so strong, he even named his own son Jet.

Abramovich’s jetRoman Abramovich, the Russian owner of Chelsea Football Club in the UK, also owns a Boeing 767, quite a huge plane for a private jet. Besides this jet he owns 2 helicopters. Well, airports are usually far from the cities, that is true. I have to admit, I really like the painting of this aircraft. It is very modest and elegant. And there is no need for an airline’s name on an aircraft. 🙂

Bruce Dickinson, the lead singer of Iron Maiden is also an official pilot. He is a first officer at an airline called Astraeus. It operates both shceduled and charter flights. Bruce flies Boeing 757s. So what is it with celebs and private jets? Well, on one hand they have too much to spend without control. We can read gossips all around the net about Tom Cruise sending his assistant on his private jet for his groceries. On the other hand probably there is the same rate of celeb flying fans as among us, just nobody cares about the likes and dislikes of us, regular people. Anyway, if I had the money and I made sure to give enough to foundations, I’d also have an aircraft. 🙂
