IRON MAIDEN's BRUCE DICKINSON Flies Endangered Turtle To Spain

According to Olive Press, IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson flew an endangered turtle to Spain.

Dickinson's personal plane flew Terri the turtle to the Canary Islands after she was washed up on a Jersey beach with a damaged shell and a nasty infection.

A crowdfunding campaign raised €8,000 to rescue the reptile and fly her to Spain, where a sanctuary had offered to care for her.

Dickinson is a true polymath. In addition to being one of heavy metal's most storied and well-respected lead singers, Bruce is a qualified airline pilot, an aviation entrepreneur and motivational speaker and has been a world-class fencer, a published novelist, movie script writer and a radio broadcaster.

Bruce is currently preparing for a massive world tour with IRON MAIDEN following the recent release of their critically acclaimed new double studio album, "The Book Of Souls", which debuted at No 1 in over 40 countries. He also used his simulator at Cardiff Aviation to learn to pilot the massive Boeing 747, Ed Force One , which will carry the band, crew and equipment over 55,000 miles round the world for concerts in 35 countries.

Bruce left IRON MAIDEN in 1993 in order to pursue a solo career, his passion for fencing and an interest in becoming a pilot. Bruce rejoined the band in 1999 and has gone on to release four albums; despite this, he hasn't stopped flying Boeing 757s.

As previously reported, HarperNonFiction and Dey Street will publish Dickinson's memoir in autumn 2017 in hardback, ebook and audio, with a paperback to follow in 2018.

His book will be a rock memoir like none other, taking in his thirty years with MAIDEN, his solo career, the weird and wonderful places and situations he’s found himself in, and his recent battle with cancer.
