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.

MC-130P Combat Shadow arrives at Sheppard

Two T-38C Talons from the 80th Flying Training Squadron land as a California Air National Guard MC-130P Combat Shadow taxis to the apron at Bldg. 1360 at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, March 21, 2018. The aircraft was brought to Sheppard to serve as a special missions armament apprentice trainer at the 363rd Training Squadron for loading GBU-39 Small Diameter Bomb systems, a training deficiency identified in 2016. The MC-130 will also be used to train crew chief apprentices at the 362nd TRS. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Robert McIlrath)
