Does anyone have a picture of Philip Bono the creator of ROMBUS, Pegasus, ICARUS, Ithacus, Selene, Deimos etc. who was employed at McDonnell-Douglas? My image searches seem to hit Salvatore Philip Bono aka "Sonny" Bono the late Congressman and former husband of Cher and the television program "Sonny & Cher." :mad:

Does anyone have some decent biographical information on Philip Bono?

Thank you Orionblamblam, I didn't realize Philip Bono is pictured next to the model. I just thought it was some exec at McDonnell-Douglas.

When he died in '93, I was in the Iowa State (University) Space Society; we got some sort of notice from *somebody* about his death with some bio and photos (probably one of the glossy space magazines that was published at the time), that being one of them. I've seen a few others, including a standard headshot, but it's been about 15 years. That's about all I have.
