Thanks for compiling this list...very interesting!!
My wife and I just brought home a 1950 Flying Cloud #7002
I guess that's the oldest one on the list yet!
I'm curious to know if #7000 or #7001 are still out there...

I saw another 1950 Flying Cloud #7006 here:
1950 Airstream Flying Cloud 21 - Washington

Perhaps you could add it to the list as well.

Thanks again!

hello all,
earlier this year I brought home a '53 flying cloud #7525. I Have it stripped down to bare aluminum and remains of the original floor. I recently returned to working on my '63 Globe Trotter and hope to get to the flying cloud later in the coming year.
Happy thanks giving

Looks like the registry isn't being updated anymore (captain jones hasn't been on since 2013)

In case anyone is still collecting these, I just got a 1953 serial number 3101 that's titled as a '57 (gonna need to get that fixed!)

Registry Updated

Stephanie and I had the time to update CaptainJones' FlyingCloud Registry for 1950 models; thanks CaptainJones for starting this!
We added information to the list, such as last known owner and location.

We know this list may not be completely accurate, so please verify/update and let us know. The model year serial number ranges came from Vintage Airstream's Photo Archives page. The registry serial number entries highlighed in green don't appear to fit within the range given for the model year.

The list was too long to post as text, so we had to create and attach a .pdf.
We have a total of 153. If you continue to update this post, we will continue to update and post the list.

Bubba & Stephanie

I have 8026 1956 which belonged to Louis and Mildred Mousley - he was Wally's right hand man as a wagon master on many European caravans - in fact this trailer is pictured in the 1957 National Geographic article as well as numerous other old European pictures - if you see pictures of airstreams parking in a wagon wheel - that was the idea of Louis
