A science fiction adventure told from the point of view of aliens who crash-land on Earth and must assimilate in secret—until their human cover is blown Budrys’s final novel opens with the report of a man found electrocuted on suburban train tracks in Shoreview, Illinois. Neville Sealman appeared to be just another commuter, but after his tragic death, no one comes forward to claim his body. And a routine autopsy reveals some disturbing physiological anomalies. Then a spaceship is unearthed in a New Jersey swamp. It’s the stuff of tabloids—except it’s all true. Years earlier, a starship crash-landed on Earth. Its passengers, human in appearance, were forced to make their separate ways in an alien world. No one knows that these otherworldly visitors have been living among the human race—but now their cover could be blown. Told in the form of an investigation reconstructed through direct and indirect witness testimony, Hard Landing takes the reader into the minds of its four protagonists as they struggle with the far-reaching ramifications of discovery. This is a suspenseful and revelatory novel about the elusive, ever-changing nature of identity.

On a cold afternoon in New England, the body of Ellen Shepard is found hanging by the neck in the attic of her home. She leaves no family. She leaves no note. And she leaves vacant her position as the general manager of the notoriously brutal Majestic Airlines operation at the nearby airport. From the moment Alex Shanahan takes control of the operation, she is pulled into the menacing intrigue of her predecessor's death. She is welcomed by an obscene depiction of Ellen's dead body twisting at the end of a rope. It's a greeting from some of her new employees, a warning that secrets can kill, and a threat that once she knows them it will already too late. But Alex wants to know the truth. She follows the trail of corruption and betrayal from the loading ramp to the airline's executive suites. What she uncovers could bankrupt the airline and destroy the lives and careers of everyone involved. It could also cost Alex her life ...

This report presents the results of a study to identify areas of research and approaches that may result in improved occupant survivability and crashworthiness of transport aircraft. This study was jointly sponsored by National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The thrust of the study is the definition of areas of structural crashworthiness for transport aircraft which might form the basis for a NASA/FAA Research Program. NASA and the FAA are planning a 10-year research and development program to improve the structural impact resistance of general aviation and commercial jet transport aircraft. As part of this program parallel studies have been conducted by The Lockheed California Company. The Douglas Aircraft Company, and The Boeing Commercial Airplane Company to review the accident experience of commercial transport aircraft, assess the accident performance of structural components and the status of impact resistance technology, and recommend areas of research and development for that 10-year plan. This report gives the results of the Boeing study.
