Iron Maiden: Bruce Dickinson featured in airline safety video

Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson’s done a ton of videos over the years, but his latest on screen effort is completely different from the rest.

A well-traveled and experienced pilot, who flies Maiden around the world in the band‘s customized Boeing 757 called Ed Force One, Dickinson plays host in a new aviation safety program video for the U.K.'s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

Tnooz reports the instructional video, entitled "Safety In The Balance,” was commissioned by CAA’s Ground Handling Operations Safety Team in an effort to reduce the safety risks during ground support activities.

Dickinson outlines the intricate requirements needed to ensure aircraft, passengers, crew and ground staff stay safe.

Maiden’s “Final Frontier Tour” continues this month through Europe with a series of festival dates, including multiple Sonisphere gigs and the Roskilde Festival in Denmark.
