I love a good air show! And this weekend the place to be is Shreveport, Louisiana for the Barksdale Air Force Base Open House and Air Show April 26-27.This year the highlight of the air show is the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. See the Wings of Blue Parachute Team, a T-33//Mig-17 Dogfight, Skyrunner, F-22 Demo Team, the Smoke-N-Thunder Jet Car, plenty of aerosports flying, static displays, historical planes and the Ft. Polk Air Drop.

Gates open at 9 a.m.  Air Show starts at 11 a.m. both Saturday & Sunday. Free Admission/Free Parking. Please allow yourself plenty of time getting there as everyone will have to be security checked before allowed to enter the base.

Here's some directions on how to get to Barksdale Air Force Base.

Last year the Thunderbirds celebrated their 60th Anniversary. Here's a video.
