Iron Maiden Frontman Wants to Fly 'World's Biggest Aircraft' Around the Globe
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.27.2014



Bruce Dickinson has invested $450,000 in the world's biggest aircraft. Top Gear reports that the Iron Maiden frontman invested in the HAV Airlander, a 300 foot long airship made by British company Hybrid Air Vehicles. The plane can travel at speeds of up to 100 mph and weighs 41.9 tons, with a capacity for 55.1 tons of cargo.

Dickinson spoke to BBC News about his investment, saying, "It seizes my imagination. I want to get in this thing and fly it pole to pole. We'll fly over the Amazon at 20ft, over some of the world's greatest cities and stream the whole thing on the internet."

He added, "It's a game changer, in terms of things we can have in the air and things we can do. The airship has always been with us, it's just been waiting for the technology to catch up."
