It's been a couple of weeks since the Barksdale AFB Airshow but I'm not done yet. You know me, just a wee bit of a "wing nut." So if you like pictures of planes and other airshow stuff, you've come to the right place.

I remember years ago when the Air Force moved the B-52s from Carswell AFB (now a Joint Reserve Base) to Barksdale AFB, I thought how cool, maybe I'll get to see one flying around every now and then like I used to when roaming the Lake Worth area near Carswell. While living in Texarkana doesn't get me the frequent glimpses I would like, they sure keep the skies busy over Shreveport/Bossier.

It's been a number of years since I've had a chance to see the WWII B-29 "Fifi" fly down the airshow centerline, but she's still a beautiful sight to behold and she was one of the first planes we saw flying that Sunday.

Take a look at some of the pics from the 2016 show and keep in mind the Barksdale Air show is free.

So, maybe I'll see you there next year?
