The singer of the heavy metal band Iron Maiden has a well-known interest in flying. Bruce Dickinson is an experienced pilot and he has flewn fans between different cities in big aircrafts.

At the competition Aero Grand Prix at Malta, the organizers had hired Dickinson to have his name on the posters. His mission was to comment the races when they were in progress in his own two-seated plane. Afterwards he was supposed to "spend some time with the fans", as the organizers have written on the homepage of the competition.

But instead of a spectacular show, Bruce Dickinson had to witness a tradegy when Eddie Goggins and Gabor Vargas collided with their planes. "His plane was just behind, he couldn't have been more than 50 meters away", says Matthew Mirabelli.

Bruce Dickinson wasn't hurt, despite the short distance to the accident.

Me too! I thought he crashed! Missleading title...

They have changed my title! I wrote "Bruce Dickinson witness plane crash" to avoid misleading. Maybe it wasn't the best but atleast it wasn't misleading.
Well, just don't blame me ^^
Valentin B - 12.09.2006 at 16:49  
the media is all about "sensational" stories with misleading titles such as this one
Ivan - 12.09.2006 at 17:17  
Sorry guys, I honestly didn't even realize the title being misleading. I'll change it to something more appropriate now

Baz Anderson - 12.09.2006 at 21:17  
haha yes!! thats what i was thinking!!
two poor men, have been killed (presumably) and all people care about is 'oh Bruce is alright...'
Spyroid - 12.09.2006 at 22:04  
Yes, the two men in the plane that crashed died. At least one of them were Swedish.

How many fans did these pilots have? Of course Bruce's fans care about him more, since we didn't even knew the other pilots! But it's a shame they got killed... Rest in peace dudes...

Yes, it is obvious I know. But it seems a total lack of respect IMO to all give our praise to someone who witnessed it, while their where two deaths..

Well, to be fair, the main reason people would be coming to this article is because of Bruce. Still, that's very sad hearing about the two pilots who died...I offer my condolences to their families and friends.
