An anniversary of a historic flight was celebrated recently on Barksdale Air Force Base.

NBC 6's Dan Jovic
caught up with two airmen involved, on the jets used in performing a mission never accomplished before.

The airmen helped put together an around-the-world flight, all while carrying 27 live 500 pound explosives.
