1956 Flying Cloud

Hello everyone,
After a long time of wanting to own an Airstream, here I am the proud owner of one. I live in Sonoma County and would love to know of any other enthusiast in the area. Nice to be here. 🤗

Congratulations and glad to have you with us. If you want your Flying Cloud entered on Captain Jones’ Flying Cloud Registry, let me know and I’ll enter it. Take care and be safe.

Greetings and welcome to the vintage Airstream hobby. Your new old trailer is a classic for sure. You just met Bubba L who is a "whale tail" specialists. And there are many others here. Maybe Bubba will post a photo of his beautiful 56 Flying Cloud.

We would love to see some photos of your trailer, both inside and out. Many folks love "big projects" so don't worry if your trailer has no interior, or subfloor, or windows, etc. We have seen many in pretty rough shape. But folks renovate them and get them back on the road.

I had a 66 Trade Wind that I did extensive work too. Here is some photos. It is a generation newer than yours. Maybe you will see may differences.

Oh golly: It appears I didn't upload my photos. So here they are. I do this as I figure new Airstreamers might find different years and models interesting to learn about. The 1966 is much different than the 1955.
