BARKSDALE AIR FORCE BASE, La. (KSLA) — Thousands came to watch the Defenders of Liberty Air & Space Show w on Barksdale Air Force Base on Saturday and Sunday, May 8-9.

From aerial acrobats to a Pearl Harbor re-enactment, spectators say it was an amazing show.

“It’s a beautiful thing to do with family,” said David Fuentes, who watches every year. “We get to see our awesome Air Force base do their thing.”

With rain expected Sunday, Barksdale made the decision to condense the show. The show started at 10 a.m. and wrapped up just before noon.

“It’s a little different, but I’m glad we’re still having it,” Fuentes said.

Frederick Dey, who is serving in the Air Force, said the air show helps others better understand his job. That’s why he brought his son to see the performances.

“To see what we do as a military, Air Force, nation, how we protect the nation, especially for children, spouses to come and see what their significant others do on the base.”
