Bruce Dickinson, lead singer of Iron Maiden (and very funny guy), is flying planes for Iceland Express in his off-season. That’s too good to resist.

Not a bad place to go for long weekend from US East Coast: links from Newark, Boston & Chicago; it’s a shorter flight than NY-LA; and with US$600 fares just a couple days before departure.
So I go, with Bruce Dickinson at the wheel. (Did I make it?)
