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.

89th Flying Training Squadron: Chambers takes helm

Lieutenant Colonel Rhett Chambers assumes command of the 89th Flying Training Squadron in a ceremony at the 80th Flying Training Wing, Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, April 22, 2016. The ceremony represents the first time in the 35-year history of the Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training Program that a Canadian Air Force officer has been appointed to a squadron command position. On 31 Mar 2008, the 89th officially received the first deliveries of the Air Force's newest primary trainer, the T-6A, which replaced the T-37 'Tweet' aircraft. The 89th FTS presently instructs almost 250 ENJJPT pilots annually in primary jet training in the Hawker Beechcraft T-6A "Texan II." The ENJJPT Program has produced over 7,100 pilots for the NATO alliance. Lt. Col. Chambers is a combat pilot with 4,000 flying hours, including 330 amassed during 75 combat missions in Afghanistan.
