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.


A crew chief from the 362nd Training Squadron looks out the door of a KC-135 while performing an inspection at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, July 11, 2018. Windows are particularily important for KC-135s because they are responsible for midair refueling. This is why KC-135s have 23 windows. These windows have special heating that prevents them from fogging or freezing. For example, the cockpit windows alone have enough heating to keep a seven room home comfortable.(U.S. Air Force Photo by Senior Airman Clites)
