Gary Rower of Rower Airshows is the premier 450-hp Stearman performer in North America, according to Tempest officials.
“Gary combines the skill of 40 years and 20,000+ hours in the cockpit with the grace of a truly classic aircraft, the Stearman, to provide audiences from coast to coast with a show that is dedicated and choreographed
to honor the excellence of the US manned space program,” officials said in a prepared release.
Rower is also a Professional Aviation Safety Consultant who developed and managed the Safety Management System for the International Council of Air Shows.

“I have the option of using almost any manufacturer’s product in my antique Stearman, but when it comes to quality, reliability and
value, I choose Tempest,” Rower said.
Rower will fly at SUN ’n FUN on Tuesday, April 1, and Wednesday, April 2. He will also make an appearance in the Tempest booth on Wednesday at 1 p.m. to meet his fans and sign autographs.
