Sheppard AFB Photo Gallery

Thank you for visiting the Sheppard Air Force Base photo gallery. Since the site was established in 2007, thousands of images from training activities to support functions, family events and more have been captured and posted here. A change in the content management system has limited the number of gallery pages to 100, so guests will not be able to scroll through the pages to the very beginning of our collection. However, guests can search for images by using keywords such as names, a specific squadron, an aircraft, or event. 

Some Sheppard images and other products can also be found on our Defense Visual Information Distribution Service page.

Kirschenbauer, a German Air Force instructor pilot with the Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training Program, used innovative communication methods and superb flying skills when an in-flight emergency bird strike threatened his T-38 Talon sortie. He is credited with saving two lives and the eight million dollar aircraft. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Debi Smith)
