Shaw AFB Pictures

I had to pick up a new keg on base this afternoon and figured Iíd bring my new camera along and take a few shots of what the base looked like for some of you that may not be familiar with what an AF installation looks like. I always liked the clean, neat, organized appearance of all of the AF bases Iíve ever been on. OK, here goes.

Old A model F-16, one of the first.


Configured as the "Wing King's" jet. It has all 4 Squadron patches


Notice all 4 Squadrons tail flash


Plaque in front of jet


Playground for the kids


Lake behind park and playground, used to have ducks and geese but really got out of control


Nice place to hang out and clear your head and think


I love this Airplane, it's so cool. P-47 Thunderbolt "The Jug"


"Suppositious Aloysious", look at the 50's on the wing

Too cool G-Man, thanks for posting! The only AFB I've ever visited was Nellis, and it was neat but not this nice.

Re: Shaw AFB Pictures

Great pics. I use to love going to the base at MB when it was open. Saw the Thunderbirds there on our Senior trip. Suckers were flying right over our hotel it was great.

Re: Shaw AFB Pictures

Half my childhood years were spent on AF bases. They are kept up nice.

Thanks for the walk down memory lane.

Nellis is OK, but it's So Dam Hot in the summer. Nothing will grow there either, they finally gave up on trying to waste there time watering and put like different colored lava rock everywhere. It looked pretty nice the last time I was there.

I was stationed at Hill AFB when this Thunderbird crashed. I was working Rescue support when it happened. This guy was a real hero, he could have punched out, but if he did his aircraft would have killed and or injured hundreds of people, literally. He was on final approach toward the runway when his engine flamed out. He rode it into the mud because there was over 250 thousand people on the flight line watching the airshow that day. I was there!!
