August 2021 winner:

Joseph E. Yehoda, Ph.D., Technology Director, Diamonex, Allentown, Pennsylvania

How long have you been in the aerospace business? More than 25 years.

How did you become interested in aircraft? From an early age, I enjoyed going to air shows as well as the U.S. Air Force museum in Dayton, Ohio, and the Smithsonian Air & Space museum in Washington, D.C. A highlight was attending the air show at Edwards AFB in 1987 that celebrated the 40th anniversary of transonic flight.

What is your favorite aircraft and why? The Supermarine Spitfire. Its elliptical wing design and bubble canopy gave it a very distinctive look. It was an innovative aircraft for its time.
