The death of Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord in 2012 was a big loss for those in the rock community, and to show how much respect he garnered, Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson, Yes' Rick Wakeman, Whitesnake's Mick Moody and Deep Purple's Glenn Hughes, Ian Paice and Don Airey all took part in a special tribute to the musician.
Is there anything Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson can't do? Yesterday (Feb. 27), it was revealed that Dickinson, whose second love is aviation, has helped launch the world's longest aircraft. From Britain's biggest aircraft hangar, the historic $100 million Airlander was unveiled, with Dickinson playing an integral part in its progression.

Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson has a rich history in the field of aviation, but the iconic singer has been accused of accepting a deal with the U.S. military to develop 'lighter-than-air' drones. Dickinson has since denied the accusations, but according to another news source, the alleged contract could be worth anything up to $500 million.
Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson's love for flying is well-known, as he's piloted the band's Flight 666 plane on tours around the world. He's also the CEO of the airline supply and maintenance company Cardiff Aviation Limited. In addition, Dickinson is involved in the charity Flying Scholarships for Disabled People (FSDP).
Along with acting as the vocalist for one of heavy metal's greatest bands, Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson is an accomplished pilot. The man could probably kick some ass in a fighter jet ala 'Aces High,' but Dickinson instead chose to pilot commercial aircrafts, including Maiden's own Flight 666 jet. Dickinson recently started his own aircraft maintenance business, Cardiff Aviation Limited, and the singer has just secured a near $8 million investment to help his company soar to new heights.
