Piloting requires attention to the moist pulpy interior.  Overripeness is
not a factor, but can increase the incidence of "bird-hits" which can
crack the exterior of the aircraft and blend the ingredients into a tasty
sauce.  A food processor can be used in this step, but you will lose some
of the tangy flavor required by the FAA.  The investigation into the
downing of a botulism-laden can of Hunt's special stewed tomatoes is
certainly being hampered by the unknown origin of the original tomatoes,
although they are thought to have come from Mrs. Dilneck's garden, which
also produced some of the first commercial aircraft.
