Talk About A Dream Come True.
No matter how you feel about Iron Maiden the band, you’ve got to admire Bruce Dickers. He’s an international rock star and a pilot which are two things that most people don’t ever achieve no matter how much they love music or flying. For that, he’s pretty badass in our opinion.
Over the weekend of July 15th, Dickerson crossed off yet another thing off his bucket list. He got to fly in his favorite World War II bomber and to no surprise, his bomber of choice was the Avro Lancaster. That makes sense as he’s English, but we think the Mosquito would also be an acceptable choice.
On July 15th, right before one of Iron Maiden’s sold out shows in Toronto, Bruce headed over to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum and got a great offer from the museum’s CEO David Rohrer. A chance to fly in his Lancaster named Vera which is one of only two airworthy examples of the plane in the world. Bruce didn’t hesitate a second and accepted the offer.
We’ve included all the pictures that were placed on Facebook of this event and put them throughout this article. Bruce smiled in every one of them as you can imagine, and we even found a short clip of Vera getting ready for takeoff with him inside. Check it out.
