Dickinson Airlifts Beirut Evacuees

on July 21, 2006 @ 11:55

Bruce Dickinson airlifted 200 British citizens who had fled war torn Beirut, Lebanon back to the UK yesterday (20 July 06) according to contactmusic.com.

Bruce flew a Boeing 757 to Cyprus where he picked up the evacuees and flew them back to London’s Gatwick Airport. A colleague says, “He was only too keen to get involved and help. He has a strong interest in the welfare of people caught up in international conflicts and cares about what is going on.”

A sincere thanks to Bruce. If only 1 in 10 of us had a heart like his, the world would be a better place.

Now take a look at what the evacuees are escaping:

Another example of Maiden's humanity and generosity. Maybe some other acts should take note instead of making docu-soaps.

Amazing that this piece of private philanthropy just manages to be made public before the release of the new album.

I think you're right there. Although a very good thing he did, it is kinda unusual that we find out right before the album is released.

it came out just now, true
but, you expect them to save british citizens in Beirut when there is no war.
maiden has always been against war
songs like the trooper, passchendale and affraid to shoot strangers show that. This time they show it by bringing home innocent people.
and yes, maybe it has promotional use, but what's best: saving war victims or spend 100000 euro to promote the cd in magazines and on the tele?
