Re: Pumpkin Seeds, John McPhee's book published in 1973 and
earlier serialized in New Yorker magazine was entitled, 'The
Deltoid Pumpkin Seed'. The book covers the development of a
experimental deltoid shaped craft developed and flown by the
Aereon Corporation which is still based in Princeton, New
Jersey. Aereon has done government contract work.

Aereon patents indicate that their airframes and platforms are
similar in shape as to what was reported as UFOs in the Hudson
Valley area of New York state, Belgium, etc. over the years.

Hope this helps.
