The incredible weather has drawn a record crowd to Barksdale Air Force Base for the annual Defenders of Liberty Air Show. In fact the base is now at capacity and they are urging visitors to wait until Sunday to come out and see the show.

The Navy Blue Angels are scheduled to fly on Sunday afternoon as well.

The gates opened at 9am and crowds have been streaming onto the base all day.

At about noon, the crowds were at capacity and the Public Affairs Office asked us to urge the public to come out on Sunday rather that try to come out Saturday afternoon.

Gates open at 9am on Sunday. The show starts at 11am.
