Terrorists blowing up jumbo-jets over Scotland and American missiles bringing down a passenger plane. 

1988 also was the year of Iron Maiden‘s seventh (!) full length studio album Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. The album marked the 5th record with Bruce Dickinson at the helm for vocals since The Number of the Beast. He jumped ship later in 1993, which made [...] Click to raid more!
