The Barksdale AFB Defenders of Liberty Air Show weekend is traditionally one of the biggest in the Ark-La-Tex. This year, the return of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds is expected to make it one of the most successful ever.
A major component of this weekend's Defenders of Liberty Barksdale Air Show will be the flying demonstrations. Some of the aerobatic pilots who'll be flying in the show met with reporters this morning at the Downtown Airport.
The Barksdale Air Force Base 2013 Defenders of Liberty Air Show has been cancelled. The event was scheduled for May 4th and 5th, but the Air Force says sequestration cuts force this event to be cancelled.
