During his 22 years with the publication, he also served as senior national editor, avionics editor, and senior engineering editor. He has two additional books: Space Wars: The First Six Hours of World War III (also written with Coumatos and Birnes) and Inside the Stealth Bomber: The B-2 Story. In 12 years of military and civilian flight testing, plus evaluating aircraft for Aviation Week, he has logged approximately 2,000 flight hours on 80 aircraft types.
