Lots of signs they are working on something, how would you go about hiding that? Has Vans got its own area 51b where the RV15 only flight tests at night? You would think if it is real someone would have seen something.

All of those grainy UFO images lately from the military?? Coincidence?

You gotta give Vans a lot of credit. They are much, much better at keeping product launch secrets than companies like Apple. Whenever there's a new iPhone, it's easy to see leaked photos many weeks ahead of time. But not with Vans...they really know how to play the game.

On the other hand, it's also possible that there's no RV-15 and they're just being coy to play with us.

Default anxiously awaiting the influx

If nothing else, it is a great marketing ploy to get a good buzz going for The Big Show
P.S. the grounds are looking great at Scholler, the current wx fabulous and forecast not bad

This made me laugh out loud... and made even funnier by the fact that all your suppositions make total sense except for the JATO (I'm laughing again even as I'm typing this!)... they are indeed a creative lot!

Well, I suppose it takes thousands of people and many many different companies to bring the new I Phones to marked, ready for distribution right at the time of the official announcement. A few less folks involved at Van's....

I don't see stickers for the RV8 or RV7 of all stripes. But Vans is bringing the RV6A back to the market. Hmm.
