"The paper!" He snatched it from her hands and began tearing it open. 

Damn newsboys for folding them! 

 

"Nick! Aren't you going to kiss me?" 

 

"Huh? Oh." He kissed her briefly, fleetingly, and returned to the paper. 

The crash was on page one. 

 

WRECKAGE OF PRIVATE AIRCRAFT FOUND 

 

Everett, Pa. The smouldering wreckage of what was apparently a 

private plane was found late yesterday evening in the heavily wooded 

area north of the city by a young Boy Scout looking for a campsite. 

 

Benjamin Talbot, aged 13, after locating the mangled aircraft, 

promptly called local police who dispatched Detective Lieutenant 

Nolan Brice, Everett Rescue Squad and FAA investigator Arron P. 

Dickson to examine the wreckage. 

 

"It's the most unusual crash site I've ever seen," FAA investigator 

Dickson told local newsmen. "There's no evidence of wings or tail 

assembly. The fuselage is also of a strange design." 

 

Detective Lieutenant Brice, after checking with the airport tower at 

Everett, and with CAP officials, informed newsmen that no private 

aircraft had been reported in trouble, or even over the particular 

area in which the craft was found. "Of course," Lieutenant Brice 

added, "one plane may have gone unnoticed. This is highly unlikely, 

but we cannot overlook the possibility. What is puzzling, to me, is 

that the aircraft has not been identified and there have been no 

bodies found." 

 

"The Civil Air Patrol," Mr. Dickson commented, "has been most 

cooperative and are now engaged in an air search of the area, while 

rescue squads work in the mountains." 

 

Mr. Dickson went on to state that the mystery crash will be 

thoroughly investigated by authorities in an effort to determine the 

make and model of the plane, as well as the fate of its occupants. 

 

At present, the crash site has been roped off and placed under guard 

by local Militiamen. Only authorized personnel will be allowed to 

view the wreckage. Major Gilbert Donnoue, of the Air Force 

Experimental Wing, refused to make a statement as to whether the 

plane was of Air Force origin. "To my knowledge, we have lost no 

test planes. However, an extensive check will undoubtedly be run to 

verify this." 

 

Test plane? Nick stared in amazement at the words that leaped at him 

from the printed page. Test plane? What the hell was going on in this 

screwy world? No wings? No tail assembly? No Mayday calls? No record of 

the plane? The whole damned thing sounded ridiculous. Coupled with the 

fact that he had been out of touch for thirteen months, it all became 

weird. 

 

And to top it all off, Nolan Brice was one of the men who had been 

placed on the investigating staff at the crash scene. Suppose he, Nick,
