RONNIE JAMES DIO Honored With Condor Squadron Flyover

This past Sunday (May 17), seven AT-6 Texans of the Condor Squadron soared above Los Encinos State Historic Park in Encino, California in remembrance of legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio on the fifth anniversary of his death.

The Condor Squadron was established 50 years ago by a group of World War II fighter pilots at Van Nuys Airport to preserve the memory of those who served. Their mission is “to honor military aviation through flight, exhibition, and remembrance.” The organization and its members own and fly these historic plans at civic events throughout the country.

A memorable weekend of festivities honoring Ronnie James Dio concluded Sunday with a motorcycle rally, barbecue and all-star concert. Bikers kicked the day off by making the ride from Glendale to Encino, California, where many of the day’s events took place in Los Encinos Park. Lita Ford, Sean McNabb and Ronnie‘s widow, Wendy Dio, were among the riders.
