Bruce Dickinson to lead WW1 dogfight over Sonisphere festival

Bruce Dickinson Pilot

Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson is to lead a World War 1 dogfight re-enactment above this year’s Sonisphere festival, just hours before he is due to take to the stage to headline the event.

Dickinson, a qualified pilot, is part of a group called The Great War Display Team, who fly replica aircraft to commemorate the actions of those who fought and died during the 1914-18 conflict.

Iron Maiden said in a statement: “The show around 6pm features nine aircraft of five different types – all exact replicas of the planes used in combat.

“Bruce will be flying his very own Fokker DR1 triplane – the same model used by infamous German flying ace Manfred von Richthofen, the Red Baron.”

Dickinson adds: “The show over Sonisphere is something I’m really excited about – we’re determined to put on an unforgettable display for everyone.”

“We’re planning an extravaganza of derring-do; 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.”

Last year Maiden arranged a Spitfire flypast just before headlining the Download festival. Dickinson, a qualified commercial pilot, regularly flies the band plane when they’re on tour.

Sonisphere takes place between July 4th – 6th at Knebworth Park. The event marks the 40th anniversary of live music shows taking place in the grounds of the stately home. The Prodigy headline on the 4th, Iron Maiden on the 5th, and Metallica on the 6th with their “By Request” set.
