Thunderbirds air show draws record crowd at Cheyenne

Thunderbirds air show draws record crowd at Cheyenne

A record number of people turned out to watch the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds perform aerial feats above Cheyenne in southeast Wyoming this week.

Cheyenne Frontier Days official Col. Matt Dillow says nearly 18,900 spectators attended the air show on Wednesday even though the show was delayed an hour and a half because of clouds.

The 2017 show was canceled because of the weather.

Dillow tells KGAB-AM that the record-setting crowd this week was a fitting tribute to the Thunderbirds roughly 20-year partnership with Laramie County Community College where the show was staged.

The Thunderbirds show cannot be held at the college in the future because of a new development occurring across from the college.

Dillow says a search is underway for an alternative site for the show.
