Defenders of Liberty, Barksdale AFB, LA Airshow 2009
May 15-16, 2009 (Photos taken Sunday May 10, 2009) 
This would have been a great show on Sunday except for the weather.  With drizzle in the morning and a very low cloud cover that prevented any flying until the time I left in mid afternoon, very little got into the air except aircraft leaving under IFR conditions.  Several of the warbirds that were scheduled to fly during the weekend were not present, no doubt kept out by the unsettled weather that affected the entire region stating on Friday with severe storms and tornados.  There was a large portion of the Barksdale ramp devoted to statics and the show had a full line up of aerobatic acts scheduled to fly along with some warbirds if the weather would have permitted.  Below are the photos of the warbirds that were at the event on Sunday.


This Skyraider was on the hot ramp to fly but did not get the opportunity on Sunday due to the weather.
