8th Air Force Museum Collection at Risk from Warbirds Online by Ryan Keough
The 8th Air Force Museum located at Barksdale AFB in Shreveport, LA was the feature of an article this week by the Shreveport Times calling attention to issues surrounding its large collection of vintage bomber aircraft - including rarities such as the Consolidated B-24J Liberator, Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, and Avro Vulcan. The National Museum of the United States Air Force — the organization charged with oversight of aircraft displayed at countless bases around the US — has given warning to the 8th Air Force Museum after an unsatisfactory inspection and failure to meet the initial stages of accreditation by the NMUSAF. As many of the aircraft are displayed outdoors for the lack of a hangar or funds to build one, the 8th Air Force Museum is facing significant challenges to remain viable under the close eye of the NMUSAF.
