.......It has been 35 years since Neil Armstrong stepped onto the surface of the Moon, just before 11 p.m. E.D.T. on July 20, 1969—an astounding feat to those of us who witnessed it on the flickering screens of black-and-white televisions........
Hmmmmm 1969, MoonBeam! gee I wonder where that name came from!!! and how about my signiture.
Lou you need to get a life beyond "axles".
For those who missed the post along time ago - we found that little space girl on our trip home from picking up MoonBeam alias GT6921 the picture is actually the trailer the night after we got home in Feb 04 - so the "moon" surface is good old Canadian snow - since patriotic syndrom has hit countries all over the world - I had to add the flag - and she would not be real unless you had earth in a blueish colour reflecting in the window.
1969 was the first Airstream custom built as the MQF - Mobile Quarantine Facility and was usually named after the "Recovery Ship" ie. Hornett III.
Why we even have the SS Moon Landing Plaque that will be mounted onto MoonBeams A-Frame when her restore is completely finished - as a tribute to "mankind" and our amazing accomplishments when against all odds.
As a side note the 1969 MQF was the first time I ever saw an Airstream - and since then I have always been intriqued by space.....
