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

An MC-130P Combat Shadow from the 129th Rescue Wing at Moffett Federal Field, Calif., taxis to Bldg. 1360 at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, March 21, 2018. The aircraft, which will be used as a ground instructional training aircraft by the 362nd and 363rd Training squadrons, has served in a search and rescue role in most recent years, but also as part of a program in which it snagged film canisters jettisoned from satellites that were re-entering the Earth's atmosphere.
