In St. Louis, one trip to the F-15 SPO at Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton, two trips to Washington, D.C., and several visits to Edwards AFB, California. Mr. Stevenson's previous book, Grumman F-14 Tomcat, was described by a review in Aerophile Magazine as « ... perhaps the height of the (Aero) series ... (which came close to telling you more than you would want to know) ». In addition, he has written an article for Armed Forces Magazine entitled « The F-14 vs. F-15 : Who Would the Real Winner Be ? ». Stevenson is the Editor of the Navy Fighter Weapons School Journal, a quartely journal on aerial warfare. He has flown in simulated dogfights in T-38 Talons with the Topgun crews. In addition, he has flown in the TA-4Js, F-4J and in preparation for this book, the F-15 Eagle. He is past director of the International Aerospace Hall of Fame. Stevenson is a candidate for the J.D. Degree in June 1979 from a San Diego law school.
