What Flying Cloud?

Hi, the other day I went to one of our local dealers, with camera in hand, to spy on the infamous "Flying Cloud" but none were to be seen. And the sales person never heard anything about any "Flying Cloud". Is this just a hype just to see if consumers might be interested in a recycled name? Actually, telling the truth; While I was snooping around the dealer lot, I did find a "Flying Cloud" but it was about forty years old.

I saw a 2009 Flying Cloud being pulled by Big Foot just last week.

No, I know what you're thinking, that would be crazy! But Big Foot wasn't pulling it by hand, he was driving a Ford F150.

I can absolutely assure you that there is at least one 2009 Airstream with the "Flying Cloud" name on it at a dealers as I've not only seen it but also been inside. This was apparently a demonstration trailer that was taken to - and purchased by a dealer - at the dealer meeting in AZ. Since it was sold to a dealer it seems likely that this name will make a comeback in 2009 - and the Safari name will be retired. It also seems likely that Airstream Corporate would prefer to be the source of information on this rather than one of their dealers. I am heading for Jackson Center now and will be there likely by May 9 as I have work scheduled to be done on the 12th. Will see what I can spy out when I'm there.

It will be very interesting to hear what you learn at Jackson Centrer!

No Brochures yet...they will have the same exact floorplans as the Safari SE.

Here is the link to the thread that I started on this unit.
