A former combat fighter pilot and international airline captain, the Virginia native has authored hundreds of articles and written 21 books. He majored in Architectural Engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute (VPI) and graduated from the University of Miami.

Mal was a photographer for the Black Star Agency and Life magazine before turning to a professional flying career. He still does photographic work the “old-fashioned way” in his own darkroom. His picture collection on railroads and the Old West numbers well over 120,000 prints. His other interests include award-winning finescale model building and collecting historic annual passes.

Mal makes his home in rural Peachtree City, Georgia with his wife Gloria.
