Barksdale Air Force Base

Home of the Air Force Global Strike Command; 8th Air Force; 2nd Bomb Wing and 307th Bomb Wing. The B52s from BAFB were the first to take off and strike in Operation Desert Storm. When 9-11 took place, President George W. Bush landed here on Air Force One to regroup and come up with a strategic game plan. They have a fantastic flight museum on base.
