Thunder Over Dalhart Airshow

Dalhart hosted its first-ever airshow on Saturday May 22 at the Dalhart Municipal Airport with Thunder Over Dalhart.

“It went amazing.” Dalhart Chamber of Commerce Ashley Posthumus said.

The event was organized by the Dalhart Area Chamber of Commerce and was the first of its kind for the community. While Posthumus said official attendance numbers wouldn’t be available until later in the week, she was pleased with the large crowds that came from all over the Panhandle to see the show.

“I never imagined the turnout we had.” she said.

In addition to local vendors who participated in the day’s events, the show included the A-10 Demo Team, a part of the U.S. Air Force, the F/A-19 Tacdemo Team from the U.S. Navy, David Martin Aerobatics, Viper Airshows and Cody Byrd, the Patriot Parachute Team, and Minijet Airshows.

Posthumus said the goal is to host an airshow every two years, with the next show tentatively scheduled for 2023
