considering he`s an Olympic class fencer,author
pilot,musician cancer survivor etc

***

And a Radio DJ and a screenwritetoo (and for clarity I know your list was not exhaustive hence the etc.). 

(It may be apocryphal take but I think the only reason he didn't compete in the Olympics was being IM were touring at the time. Incredible!)

Would be interested if Sharon Osbourne gets a mention in his book. She rips him apart in her autobiography but there seemed to be a real rivalry / jealousy between Ozzie and Dickinson. I suspect she may not even get a footnote.)

As far as I'm aware Osbourne is not mentioned.But as she
is a nasty,ruthless piece of work,I think denying her
more free publicity may be a good choice by Bruce.

Her father was a ruthless person too,the apple doesn`t
fall far from the tree!Her awful treatment of Bob
Daisley and Lee Kerslake is just one example,Daisley
wrote a hell of a lot of the lyrics on Ozzy`s first solo
albums,when he and Kerslake pressed for a fair share of
the royalties,she had their parts on the first two
albums re-recorded note for not by Mike Bordin(Faith No
More/Ozzy) and Robert Trujillo(Metallica) just to spite
them.Then there`s the classy tales of her sending her
excrement to her enemies in a Tiffany box.

That was one of our fleet converted to carry all the equipment in the back with band, crew and press in the front. Dickinson did very little of the flying during the tour given the lack of rest he was getting performing.

I wish Gene Simmons was a pilot. I'd like to see a KISS aeroplane frequently flying.

Matthew,i guessed he wouldn`t be flying much due to his
touring workload.Was that an Astraeus plane in the
pic,that`s from the recent Book of Souls tour?

Ah, then I'm mistaken. Wonder whose fleet they're using now?

It went well, thank you. 

Signing started at 6pm. Or should have done. Queue was long so they started signing people at least an hour before that. I was queuing for around 90 minutes. Thankfully, I got chatting to folk so it did pass the time.

The film Flight 666 charts one of their world tours with Dickinson pilot the plane. You can watch it here.  (In truth, once the touring started he barely piloted the plane because of the strict limits set by the Civil Aviation Authority on how many hours he can work.)

Got it on dvd,great as usual,I know he barely flies
whilst touring,but it makes for good PR, plus we know he
actually does fly during his downtime from Maiden.Got the
autobiography for my birthday, still to read it,but
looking forward to when I do!
