The Eternal Night #69

by

The plane ride to Aspen was uneventful, except for some turbulence that made Mason think the plane was about to fall out of the sky. I didn't like a Cessna, the one I chartered, any more than a commercial DC-4, but I didn't want to be on a commercial airline's schedule. Sperry had made it clear he wanted this wrapped up as soon as possible. Plus, they'd start filming the Derek Slade movie soon so Brick Mason had to finish his crash course in detective work before then.

We checked into a small hotel in Aspen just after sundown...

    I’m sure that it was the DC-4 around in those days as you’re very good at getting historical fa to correct, Christopher.
    (Not sure about US English, but should it be ‘chartered’ in line 3?)

    You're correct. I fixed it. I didn't get a misspelled error because charted is a word too. I usually proofread better than that. Thanks for the heads up.

    And yes, I did research into the planes.
