So here I was in a glider, age 15, preparing for my first solo (scared to death, I wasn’t even legal in a car yet), as soon as the tow plane gets off the ground I find myself reciting the lyrics "climb into the sky never wonder why!)
Last year they chartered the 75 between 2 European cities to take a planeload of fans to the show. Obviously Bruce Dickinson was the FO and greeted the fans aboard and as they deplaned, and then again on stage that night. I think the news coverage of that was on You Tube if I remember correctly.
Some other or at least another notable from the punk and metal scene, is Dexter Holland from the Offspring who I beleive holds a type rating in a DC9 and 747. (can anyone verify)
