The Central Coast Barnstormers (Gilroy, CA), one of the longest running programs in northern California, have joined the Pacific Coast Football League (AAA)! According to co-owner Jose Rodriguez, “The bottom line is Joffre and I do what is best for the Barnstormers and the best for the Barnstormers is the PCFL!  It will be great to renew the rivalry with some of the teams that forced us to get better! Darryl Miller is president of the Morrision Model Aircraft Flyers Club of Morrison, Illinois, and wanted a fun club project. Bill Lyons, of Moline, Illinois, was looking for something a bit different and fun to fly at the many all electric events he attends, so he set out to design and build this Yogi Cub. Ever since Clay Adams saw “The Great Waldo Pepper,” he’s wanted to recreate the barnstorming lifestyle. A Northwest Airlines captain by profession, but a barnstormer at heart, Adams hails from an aviation family and has remained in his hometown of Rosemount, Minn.
Adams soloed at 16 in the family’s Cub, an airplane he still owns today, and has now logged more than 24,000 flight hours in 97 different aircraft types. Clay Adams bought this 1929 Travel Air for Nostalgic Wings, a company he formed to give airplane rides to the public. His first call was to Rob Lock, a fulltime barnstormer out of Kermit Weeks’ Fantasy of Flight. The intended mission of the American Barnstormers Tour is to expose the public to vintage airplanes. The American Barnstormers Tour begins in Kalamazoo, Mich., on July 15, and will feature 15 to 20 aircraft in all. Clay Adams, along with 15 to 20 other pilots, will visit nine airports in July as part of the American Barnstormers Tour, scheduled to culminate with a weekin EAA AirVenture.
Depending on the success of this year’s event, long-term plans are to hold the American Barnstormers Tour in subsequent years. Owners Joffre Longoria and Jose Rodriguez are excited about the opportunities the PCFL presents.
The Solano Chiefs were one of the powerhouses when we first started, and we have had we had many epic battles on the field with the Richmond War Angels who were the PCFL Champions this past season.


Greg Garcia returns after a year off, and Jeff Parsley, the longest tenured Barnstormer coach has returned to help both ownership and coaching. We would like to share with you a variety of model photos submitted by the readers of Flying Models. Darryl picked up an old Leasure Electronics Playboy Senior Cabin kit at a recent swap meet and he and fellow club members started construction in early 2013.
The Yogi Cub is loosely based on a Piper J-3 Cub and a homebuilt type plane and is constructed mainly of Styrofoam that Bill purchased at a local dollar store.
His father had flown C-47s during the Korean War; prior to joining Northwest, he managed Worthington Airport in Minnesota, where he ran a charter and crop-dusting operation.
It’s a family affair with his wife Cindy driving the support vehicle and his children selling T-shirts.
He has flown children as young as 4, all the way up to a woman in her nineties who had never been in an airplane before. Time sped by and Adams realized nothing had happened, so he vowed to do what it took to make the tour a reality.
The aircraft are all originals, and the pilots and crews will dress in period costume for authenticity.
As for Adams, he and his fellow barnstormers will see their dream come to fruition as thousands of people are introduced to these vintage airplanes and the Golden Age of Aviation. Both guys are true Barnstormers and will assist Joffre Longoria in running the team.  The Barnstormers also welcome offensive coordinator Joey Eubanks to the coaching staff. Bill said the design was simply drawn on sheets of foam, cut out, assembled and then painted with a spray can of yellow paint. Adams’ brother Craig, a crew chief for Northwest, was killed as a passenger in an airplane accident. When the weekend is free from air shows, Adams is typically flying passengers who’ve been given gift certificates for rides.
Lock brought Sarah Wilson, who flies one of his aircraft at Fantasy of Flight, on board to handle public relations.


For the week of AirVenture, the goal is to make the area where the airplanes are parked realistic as to what a barnstormers’ gathering may have looked like, complete with bunting and flags. Teams like the Fury are what made the CCB look at ourselves and say we need to get better as a whole organization if we are going to compete with them!
Eubanks was the offensive coordinator of the now defunct Salinas Spartans during their league championship run. Bill then used his computer to produce the custom graphics as well as Yogi himself at the controls.
The tour is set to appear at nine airports, culminating with a week on display at EAA AirVenture 2006. As it turned out, his passenger had been a B-17 pilot, but hadn’t been in an airplane since the end of World War II. We also look forward to teams we have not played like the Bears and Heat as well as the rest of the PCFL teams. The model is covered with transparent blue and red MonoKote and is guided with a Spektrum DX5. A sound system plays Yogi Beara€™s theme song at the start of each flight, then transitions to play the sound of a Continental engine.
Once test flown, the turn-key model was then raffled at the cluba€™s annual all electric fun-fly. Bill recently won the Pilotsa€™ Choice Award at the Watts Over Owatonna event for his design.
