The Barksdale Defenders of Liberty Air & Space Show is organized and hosted by the 2nd Bomb Wing Barksdale Air Force Base with the support of the Shreveport-Bossier Military Affairs Council.


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.

The Barksdale Defenders of Liberty Air & Space Show serves to enhance the public awareness of Air Force capabilities and preparedness, and allows Shreveport-Bossier City to showcase the Louisiana home of the B-52, grant access to tour the military installation, view military and aerobatic performers, and support the recruiting arm of the United States armed forces.
