Held for the first time in 1933, the Barksdale Defenders of Liberty Air & Space Show is a full-weekend spectacular featuring displays of the latest, as well as historic, military and civilian aircraft and other related performers.

Many Commemorative Air Force (CAF) aircraft will be in attendance including: B-29 FIFI, B-17 Texas Raiders, A-26 Lady Liberty, PBJ Devil Dog, and TORA TORA TORA.

These CAF aircraft will participate in a Heritage Bomber Formation Pass, followed by a three-ship active-duty formation featuring a B-1 Lancer, B-2 Spirit, and B-52 Stratofortress. One of the shows organizers aimed to have an example of every military bomber and they are coming extremely close.

The Barksdale Defender of Liberty Air & Space Show serves to enhance public awareness of U.S. Air Force capabilities and the Barksdale AFB mission through static displays and aerobatic performances. Likewise, it allows Shreveport-Bossier City to showcase Louisiana as the home of the B-52, pay tribute to service members, and support the recruiting arm of the United States Armed Forces.
