Evan flies - Che Barnes from
I first met Lt. Cdr. Che Barnes in 2007 when my dad and I went to see the IAC (International Aerobatic Club) practice flying at the Tracy airport. One of the pilots was this really nice guy who said he flew for the Coast Guard. He spent a bunch of time telling me all about his plane and stuff. Then in 2008 at the Pacific Coast Dream machines car and airshow in Half Moon Bay, the Coast Guard flew in a C-130 – and Che was the pilot!

I really lucked out with this interview because I got a great tour of Coast Guard Air Station Sacramento too!...
