Land of the Giants

The Spindrift, a commercial spaceship on a flight from New York City to London, became lost when it passed through a strange cloud in the ship's orbit around Earth. It landed on an alternate Earth-type planet, where the inhabitants were roughly twelve times the size of the Spindrift's passengers.
