Gary started performing at air shows and entertaining audiences with his 1942 PT-17 Stearman in 2002. The show highlights Gary’s skills as a professional aerobatic pilot, and the way he performs in the Stearman as some spectators describe, “is like ballet in the air.”

The Stearman is large and loud, yet beautiful and graceful at the same time. Gary’s performance in this beautiful bird is filled with giant barnstormer loops, hammerhead turns, slow rolls, a Cuban eight, inverted flight, snap roll and one of his favorite maneuvers, the Outside Humpty Bump.


Gary now also performs a fantastic night show, and is the only open cockpit Stearman act to do so in North America. The beautiful maneuvers and signature sound of the Pratt & Whitney radial engine are magically enhanced by dramatic, state of the art lighting effects that are the ultimate evening addition to any airshow!
