The Deltoid Pumpkin Seed

The 7 as the aircraft was called was bright orange it had no wings it had a deep belly and a broad arching back Seen from above it was a delta From the side it looked like a fat and t. I m not sure that a reader without a modicum of technical knowledge concerning aviation a working vocabulary of aeronautics and an understanding of the rudiments of flying would enjoy this as much as I did My father is a retired aeronautical engineer a lifelong model airplane designerbuilderracer a private pilot and the the one who taught me my first word airplane and I ve been flying in and fascinated by small planes my whole life with one flight lesson to my credit as well so I am predisposed to enjoy this account of the rise and fall of the idea of a radical experimental flying machine sans wings the Aereon 26But even a reader with just the barest interest in the subject matter treated upon here should be able to find something to their liking within these pages McPhee uses words in most delightful ways as always His characterizations of the principles are particularly good in Deltoid I found it really interesting that the whole Aereon endeavor was conceived of and shepherded by a series of devout Presbyterians who saw the development of a viable dirigible freight industry as right livelihood in the service of their self imposed Christian missions They envisioned 100meter LTA shipping vessels carrying massive uantities of supplies and euipment on missionary expeditions across the globe Both Monroe Drew and William Miller the founder and subseuent president respectively were ordained Presbyterian ministers each of whom saw their work as sacred duty a vocation combining religion and aviation ordained by God Not my cup of tea to be sure but it made me wonder how many other scions and wanna be scions of industry see their businesses as being in service of and sanctioned by their GodThe one big disappointment of the book after 140 pages of aeronautical theological and psychological minutia was the wrap up McPhee used literally 12 of 1 paragraph to end the story of the would be wingless aircraft That was very disappointingNevertheless a uick entertaining and interesting read I think anyone interested in a little known backwater of aviation history would enjoy it particularly if you don t mind a fair bit of technical jargon and a goodly chunk of Christian mumbling as would fans of McPhee s inimitable proseI found the religiosity of the principles to be irritating in the whole and apparently I m not the only one not everyone at the Aereon Corporation saw prayers at business meetings and other trappings of their pious proselytizing partners as beyond the pale Interestingly and not surprisingly it looks from a uick perusal of the Aereon Corp website that the technology they were developing in the 1950s 70s the subject of this book is not being utilized in the humanitarian way intended by the early corporate visionaries but has instead been turned to a military application Sigh You Left Early reader without a modicum of technical knowledge concerning aviation a working vocabulary of aeronautics and an understanding of the The Battle Of Sauron
