Preps for the Barksdale "Defenders of Liberty" Air Show

BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) – If you heard a rumble in the air in the Shreveport - Bossier area Thursday afternoon, it was probably the US Air Force Thunderbirds practicing for Saturday's big air show: Barksdale "Defenders of Liberty" Air Show.

Pilots took to the skies today for a practice session.

They're making sure everything's right for the air show. During fly-overs they check for any possible obstructions.

While we were at today's practice, we caught up with one of the pilots who is a Bossier City native.

Carl Hooks tells us his family is welcoming his crew to the area with some good home-cooking.

He says they're preparing to feed 80 to 90 people with a fish-fry at their home Thursday evening.
