Rower Airshows

Rower Airshows, the most exciting, pulse pounding vintage Stearman airshow on the circuit today! Gary Rower, a former USAF F-16 instructor and current airline captain, has flown all over the world, accumulating over 21,000 hours in every type of aircraft imaginable.

The bone-rattling resonance of a modified Pratt and Whitney R985 radial engine. Almost 1000 cubic inches of inimitable vintage character and 450 horsepower coupled with an incredible billowing smoke system! When this amazing bird takes to the skies over show center, you are guaranteed to see an unforgettable demonstration of skill and aerobatics in one of the most beautiful examples of this classic aircraft in the world!

Chuck Dignan and his Skybolt return to Telluride in a streaking contrail of curling smoke and oil. This particular Skybolt was famously owned by John Denver before Chuck started flying it over the Rocky Mountains of the Telluride area.
