Hi all

A while ago I mentioned a TV programme hosted by Iron Maiden's lead
singer, Bruce Dickinson. Today, on the Discovery web site, I came
across a short interview with Dickinson.

See
<URL:http://www.discoverychannel.co.uk/flight/heavymetal/int...;
for the details.

Any idea how long that show has been running?
I noticed the name in the tv guide a few weeks ago and thought "oh great,
it's another programme about the rivalry between Airbus and Boeing".

Then, during a commercial break, I found out it was hosted by Bruce.
I'm now a frequent viewer! :-)

I knew that crazy bugger liked airplanes, and I knew he held a licence,
but I thought he just flew props every now and then.
He doesn't actually own his own 757, does he?
Tell me he's just collecting flighttime as SpeedBird pilot.

I always thought he like fencing more than flying.

I don't know about him, but I know John Travolta has his own 747 and is a
fully qualified Jumbo pilot.

(Maybe everyone knows that, but heck, it's worth repeating!)

Hi Marcel

The programme was first shown in the UK a few months ago on the main
Discovery channel. It is now being repeated - one episode per week, I
think - on Discovery Wings.

I was playing poker online a day or two ago. One other rather hopeless
played went by the name Jonny Blade. Ah, the oldies but goodies.

Then what's all this talk about "his 757"?
He talks about it all the time on the show.

Wait a second....if he can't tell a 757 from a 737, I ain't ever flying
with him! :-)
