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.

373rd TRS Det. 2 missile maintenance training

Airman 1st Class Darby Perry, a missile maintenance Airman going through initial qualification training at the 373rd Training Squadron Detachment 21, performs a launch tube heater control functional check at Francis E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming, Feb. 26, 2018. The launch tube heater ensures a motor doesn't burn up, which could cause equipment failure in a missile launch facility. Detachment 21, which was stood up by the 982nd Training Group at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, has been providing formal training since the beginning of 2017 after Air Education and Training Command and Air Force Global Strike command determined that was the best platform to prepare Airmen for work in the field.
