Test Pilot

Allison Symes

bitter lemon

The crash landings were becoming embarrassing. Nobody minded the odd accident. That happened to everyone but this one was going to mean the test pilot, if unlucky enough to survive, would be hauled before the Board of Inquiry.

Like all such Boards, there was a hell of a lot of bureaucracy and paperwork. Unlike most Boards, said bureaucracy was to minute in minute detail what happened to the late specimens who'd faced them.

And this latest Inquiry was going to play to a packed house.

The crash had been spotted by those pests of the universe - humans.

Nobody was going to forget the Board of Inquiry for Roswell.
