It’s May and that means it’s time for the Barksdale AFB Airshow. It’s just a short drive to Shreveport and the fun takes place both Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7.

This year, the Blue Angels will perform. Now, that’s the one I’m ready to see. I’ve seen them perform on the beach at their home base in Pensacola, Fla. Wow, what a sight!

You’ll also be able to see a B-52, B-2 Spirit, B-1 Lancer, C-17, Cessna A-37 Dragonfly among others.

This is not only a chance to watch some amazing aircraft fly but also a chance to get up and close to a lot of them as well.

Admission to the air show is free and parking is also free. Gates open at 9AM and show starts at 11AM both days. According to their website, they do encourage you to allow plenty of time to park your car in designated areas and security checks.
