About this Item

Yellow boards with black tape binding; gold lettering on spine; dj is not price clipped, has a few minor chips and is protected with Brodart cover; stated second impression; inscription on ffep from previous owner. "An airliner on a routine flight from San Francisco to Tokyo with 300 passengers and the usual complement of crew is suddenly struck by a bizarre accident. A U.S. Navy fighter pilot on a secret test mission fires a missile at what he thinks is his prescribed target, but hits the Straton 797 instead. The damaged airliner plummets from its subspace cruising altitude and automatically levels out a 11,000 feet over the mid-Pacific. But with the sudden escape of the airliner's pressurized cabin air, all the passengers and crew are either dead, comatose, or brain-damaged and raving mad." -- from the dj.
