Congratulations Joseph Bermudez

Jane’s Defence Weekly wins at Paris Air Show

Jane’s Defence Weekly last night scooped the Northrop Grumman Award for the Best Breaking News Submission at the 2005 Aerospace Journalist of the Year Awards.

The article, entitled ‘ North Korea deploys new missiles’, was authored by Joseph Bermudez on 30 July 2004.

Peter Felstead , editor of Jane’s Defence Weekly, said: “We are honoured to receive this prestigious award. There was extremely stiff competition as, unlike Jane’s Defence Weekly, the focus of the other publications is solely on aviation and ours is tri-service.”

Two other articles were shortlisted at last night’s awards ceremony: Rob Hewson for ‘ China aids Iran's tactical missile programme’ (11 November 2004) and Michael Sirak ‘The end game’ (8 September 2004).
