The Global Power Museum

After we visited the town of Ben Wheeler, Texas on Monday we continued on to Shreveport, Louisiana and Bossier City. Our first stop on the area was at the Barksdale Global Power Museum located on Barksdale Air Force Base. This museum was formerly known as the Eighth Air Force Museum and chronicles the history of American aerial bombardment. The museum grounds feature some rare warbirds including a B-36 bomber and an SR-71 Blackbird. It was then on to the Horseshoe Hotel and Casino for the evening.
