IRON MAIDEN Frontman Attends Malta's AERO GP Competition

IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson attended the Aero GP competition in Malta Sunday (September 10) where Gabor Varga, the Swedish aerobatics champion, died after his aircraft collided with another plane, according to Reuters.

Officials said that his aircraft started losing altitude, hit another plane and then both crashed into the sea near the entrance of Marsamxett Harbour in Valletta.

The other pilot, Eddy Goggins, 37, from Ireland, parachuted to safety. Varga was in the book of Guinness World Records for performing 256 aerobatic loops in an hour.

Dickinson was expected to be flying round the harbour today (September 10) at 11:00 a.m. and was scheduled to do the commentary during the competition.
