Hello all,
I'm not sure I'm doing this correctly so I apologize in advance.

I am 75 and have been reading SciFi for 60+ years. There is a book that I read around 20 years ago I believe and I can't remember its title. If any of you happen to know the title; after I give a brief description of the story I would very much like to know what it is.

The story takes place on earth and there is a rouge planet heading toward our planet. One of the main characters tells his wife that the planet will be very close in its passing and he thinks that he will be able to fly their airplane from earth to the atmosphere of the other planet. His scheme works but soon he sees that the planet is populated by creatures who are about 7 feet tall with human like bodies but heads that resemble apes.

As the two planets start to move away from each other, he sees that now he can't fly back to earth. He and his wife try exploring the planet and soon he is killed by the creatures and his wife is made the property of one of these creatures. From there the story continues about her existence as a slave.

Thank you in advance if you, or someone remembers the title of this book.
