The Barksdale Airshow will be back this May for the first time since 2017 but this time without the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds. The Airshow will be held Saturday, May 18th and Sunday, May 19th in Bossier City. The show is on a 2-year cycle putting the next time it'll come to Barksdale spring 2021. The airshow has been a staple in our community since 1933 and will surely bring thousands to our area.

The Thunderbirds will be in New Mexico that same weekend and the Blue Angels are booked for a show in Missouri. However, the Canadian Snowbirds from the Royal Canadian Air Force will be in town showing off their skills. While it's not an American team I'm still excited to see the show and all the amazing flying... And from what I hear they're the most polite pilots in the world and their jets run on maple syrup. #SorryEh
