I'm looking to read up on an old book I read. It was a novel/book about an alien species stopping a Boeing plane to scan it for another alien species which was hiding on the plane.

One species was more technological, the other was more biological, I believe they were some kind of silvery metallic liquid that could change form and they infected other species. But I can't remember the name. It started with a passenger plane being stopped mid air, and is from the perspective of a human person. Some of the plot points involve the protagonist being chased by the hostile alien and taken to a facility to cure them.

  • An old book? About how old was it? Like 50, 60 years old?

  • I don't know, not that old I bet. Probably more like ten, twenty,

    This seems a rather thin plot to fill an entire novel. It sounds like a short story. If it was a full length novel what else happened to fill the rest of the novel? Jan 11 at 5:15
