Iron Maiden star pilots LFC flight
Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has piloted Liverpool FC's flight for their next European match.
It was Aces High in the skies above the city when the Reds took off for their Europa League game against Napoli.
The rocker, who has had a pilot's licence for years, regularly flies for charter airline Astraeus.
A spokesman for Liverpool FC confirmed the singer was flying the team to Italy but his passengers did not include some of the Anfield club's biggest names, with Spanish striker Fernando Torres and captain Steven Gerrard left out of the squad for Thursday's game.
Iron Maiden have had more than 30 hit singles and sold millions of albums since they formed in London in the 1970s.
Bruce is also an accomplished fencer and novelist. His first book, The Adventures Of Lord Iffy Boatrace, was published in 1990.
