It's called "Run to the hills". Very enjoyable song and great video as well, very humorous.

Is it either?

I've wondered the same thing upon each viewing of the programme, but I'm pretty sure it's neither of the ones mentioned.

Infact on second listenings, it isn't either of them.

or,

I suspect it's more likely to be run to the hills as it made it further up the charts.

I don't have audio on this PC but I am thinking the most aviation oriented Iron Maiden song would have to be "Aces High"....

T'is a TV prog in which Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden and I believe Astreus F/O flies various aircraft. Was a regular feature of the late Discovery Wings channel

Do you mean the very first music played, as the logo comes up? It's not Iron Maiden, it's a theme written for the show in a Maiden-ish style. I don't have the credits in front of me, but I remember seeing someone else's name there.

If it was Iron Maiden, the bass and drums would be much better - you've been fooled by the twin guitar bit!

Always thought it was 'Hallowed be thy name' by the said Iron Maiden

Its neither of the mentioned above. I'm a big Maiden fan and Bruce Dickinson fan (and of course flying heavy metal!).

The theme tune's definitely not a maiden song. Its too glitsy to be one.

Pretty sure its JUST a a song composed by discovery/bruce dickinson for the show. (Bruce does solo music as well as sing in the Maiden).

You can tell this as the song is very gun-ho/commercial sounding and fits the program.

Just my 2p's worth!
