There goes the siren that warns of the air raid
Then comes the sound of the guns sending flak
Out for the scramble we've got to get airborne
Got to get up for the coming attack.

Jump in the cockpit and start up the engines
Remove all the wheelblocks theres no time to waste
Gathering speed as we head down the runway
Gotta get airborne before it's too late

Running, scrambling, flying
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again
Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die
Won't you run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high.

Move in to fire at the mainstream of bombers
Let off a sharp burst and then turn away
Roll over, spin round to come in behind them
Move to their blindsides and firing again

Bandits at 8 o'clock move in behind us
Ten ME-109's out of the sun
Ascending and turning our spitfires to face them
Heading straight for them I press down my guns.

Rolling, turning, diving
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again
Rolling, turning, diving
Rolling, turning, diving
Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die
Won't you run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high

Maiden for ever http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Aye...i've got the very same video on my PC, just watched it, great BoB footage..but half way through theres a shot of a plane i cant ID, its a cross between a Fairy Firefly and a Fulmar...but yup great vid takes me back, i went to see Iron Maiden at Donnington in the late 80's or was it early 90's...anyway they were headlining and Guns n Roses were there, Megadeth, Dave Lee Roth and many other great bands... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
