Bruce Dickinson DR1 Sonisphere 2014 640x360

Iron Maiden have released video footage of frontman Bruce Dickinson’s dogfight re-enactment above this year’s Sonisphere festival.

Dickinson, a qualified pilot, led a team of colleagues from The Great War Display Team in an aerial ‘battle’ over the festival site just hours before taking to the stage to headline the event.

Speaking ahead of the flight, Dickinson had previously said: “We’re determined to put on an unforgettable display for everyone.”

“The manoeuvres we’ll be performing are all based on true-life battles from a hundred years ago. What some of these fighter pilots achieved back then was nothing short of miraculous given the conditions they were working under and the seriousness of what was at stake.”

You can watch the footage of Dickinson flying at Sonisphere in his own Fokker DR1 Triplane below:
