Bruce Dickinson’s Experimental Aircraft Crashed
No one was hurt in what is probably the slowest aircraft crash ever.
Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson loves flying. He's even flown Maiden around the world on a few tours. Now, he's financing an experimental aircraft called the Airlander 10. According to Blabbermouth.net, Airlanders are "low noise, low pollution, and environmentally friendly. They carry insane amounts of cargo and take off and land vertically from any location." Dickinson explained the Airlander's usefullness:
"You want to put a hospital into Africa? You put the whole hospital in the inside of this — whoosh. Start the generator. 'Here's your hospital, buddy!' Job done.
He added that:
"I'm not expecting to get my money back anytime soon, I just want to be part of it. Being a rock person, I could put it up my nose, or buy a million Rolls Royces and drive them into swimming pools, or I could do something useful. There are very few times in your life when you're going to be part of something big."
Now, if they can just stick those landings!
