Justice Served

Air Force Office of Special Investigations agents played a key role in the conviction of Noshir Gowadia, a former Northrop Grumman B-2 engineer, for spying for China. A federal court earlier this month found Gowadia, 66, of Maui, Hawaii, guilty on 14 counts of selling weapons designs to the Chinese, filing false tax returns, and other espionage-related charges.
