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.


Staff Sgt. Paul Pest (left) and Tech. Sgt. Michael Newton, 366th Training Squadron explosive ordinance disposal preliminary course instructors, prepare to detonate C-4 using a timed fuse at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, June 12, 2018. A timed fuse burns at a rate of 40 seconds per foot, however, environmental factors such as humidity can effect this burn rate. To mitigate environmental factors, Pest and Newton, performed a "test burn'" before conducting live demolitions. This allowed them to calculate exactly how much fuse would be required.
