A Possible Addition : Please Identify

We have an excellent chance of purchasing this trailer. It is a 1959, I THINK but I would like some help with better I.D.

It's a Soveriegn, and is really loaded with some FUN features. I never saw a hidden keyhole before!

No numbers; been sitting in a field forever.

She is very dull in color, but pretty much intact. Not much has been done to the innards, and she would be a project.

Actually, we could deal with that because Luna is running perfectly :-)

So what's one more baby??

I would appreciate any help any one can give.

Cool big windows, I'll bet it's really light inside. Can't wait to hear more about it. I think when one is nearly done, it's time to bring home another...

I am talking to the guy. Stay tuned.

This unit has been sitting at a lake, with the Avion next to it.

She has no Wally numbers.

What is the dif between the '59 and the '57? I guess I need to examine the title :-)

My calculator says 2 years.

Seriously, I just love the way those multi-segments look. Hope everything works out for you.

'57 was was the year they started to switch over frrom 9/13 panels to 7 panels, first in CA then Ohio. So most likely, this one is Ohio built. I guess it could be older...post the serial number, then we can confirm.

Aistream Ohio must have hired a design engineer from Akron's Goodyear Aircraft lighter-than-air division back in 1957! If you buy it, make sure it includes the tie-down tether line! Stencile "U.S. NAVY" on the sides and you'll be ready for sub surveillance patrols! Looks like it will just float down the highway.

Good luck with your decision and thanks for posting the photos. Very cool looking AS.
