SKY NEWS will be accompanying Iron Maiden to India for the first show of their monumental and groundbreaking SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME WORLD TOUR. They will be covering the band leaving the UK in their customised Boeing 757, flown by vocalist and Airline Captain Bruce Dickinson, the flight to India and their first concert of the tour in Mumbai.

Initial news of their departure will be broadcast on Sky News live from India on Friday morning Feb 1st at 0645, 0745 & 0845 GMT followed by a news package of the concert itself to run throughout the day on Saturday Feb 2 (news agenda permitting). There will also be 2 pieces on the website, one on Friday and another on Saturday. The web address is www.sky.com/news

Says Sky News Entertainment Correspondent Matt Smith: "We're really looking forward to following the band on tour to India. From flying their own plane, to playing loads of new and unusual cities, it looks like we've got loads of things to report on."

The band depart Wednesday morning for Mumbai to kick off the tour so if you are around the Stansted area keep an eye out for the plane taking off and flying past around 9am."

Just an observation on this matter When I was working in Equatorial Guinea Bruce Dickinson used to fly our charter plane and as we got off the disembarkation song used to be run to the hills.
If it's a girl they're naming her Sigourney after an actress, if it's a boy the 're naming him Rodney after Dave
