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.


Airman Sidney Jones, 363rd Training Squadron F-22 armamnets apprentice course student, connects a firing contact assembly to an F-22 Raptor's 20mm gattling gun as her wingman, Airman Miles Bussey watches at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, Oct. 12, 2018. The firing contact assembly is one of the most important pieces in the gun as it transmits the electrical signal from the flightdeck to the gun and without it the gun could not shoot. Torquing it correctly will keep it from coming loose and falling into the gun causing it to jam and endager the pilot and mission. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Pedro Tenorio)
