Airstream birth revealed

Finally! Captured on film for all to see; the Silver Twinkie birth process.

I was honored to be in attendance this spring in Seattle Washington when this one arrived. People for miles around flocked to watch in awe.

As the new trailer began to emerge, a fountain of clear coat jetted forth, covering the on-lookers and new trailer alike. The crowd was very supportive - with an almost festival like atmosphere of great joy and admiration.

Hmm...looks like this one won't pass the leak test!

Looks like the rain sensor on the Fantasic fan could be defective and never shut off or they have the water pressure regulator set to high.
Best,

Are not these the same people who hang out at area 31 or 33 or whatever it is? One has to start wondering ..................perhaps they are trying to socialize us to the fact that there truly are aliens about so when they unveil themselves we'll not be quite so aggressive as the movies from the fifties showed.
