Engineer guilty of selling secrets
Honolulu ? A federal jury convicted a former B-2 stealth bomber engineer Monday of selling military secrets and helping China design a stealth cruise missile.
Noshir Gowadia was accused of pocketing at least $110,000 from China, which he allegedly used to pay the mortgage on a multimillion-dollar oceanview home he built on Maui’s north shore. Gowadia, who has been in federal custody since October 2005, faces life in prison when he is sentenced in November.
The 66-year-old gave China a design for a cruise missile component and then showed its effectiveness when compared with United States’ air-to-air missiles, according to federal prosecutors.
