"Stationed at Webb in 71-72 after tour in Japan and Korea on F4s. Crew chief on T38s, real nice duty with great hours. Had many good friends on and off base. Very nice area and people. Wagon Wheel was allways an interesting place to hang out as was Big Spring City Park. As others have mentioned I to arrived at night and was fooled by refinery lights into thinking town was much bigger. "

"My father, Burt T. Johnson, retired out of Big Spring in about 1965 after 25 years of service. We had been in Tripoli, Libya just before that. He was in communications, but I am uncertain of his role on this base. I have vague memories riding the bus from chapel to housing. I always felt safe living on base. What a caring community of people to be surrounded by. Dad moved us to Arlington, TX where he lived until 1989. Then he moved to Sedro Wooley, WA. He passed away in 2002."

"I was stationed at Big Springs AFB ,later Webb AFB in 1952-1954 in the Hq Sq Sec. 3560th Air Base Gp. I was a dispatcher in Base Operations so got to meet with many of the pilots and cadets during the 2 years there. Big Springs was very dry during those years so we had dust storms regularly leaving red dust everywhere. Being from Indiana where things are green it was quite a change. I did learn to enjoy the area and have returned a couple of times just to renew old memories. Am glad that I found the museum site and would like to visit at the next reunion. "

"I was stationed at Webb AFB with the 33st FIS as an Aircraft Electrician from January 1961 thru September 1962. At first I didn't care much for West Texas bus as I spent more time there I learned to appreciate it. I have a lot of very goof memories, both on base and in town. I wouldn't trade my experiences in the Air Force, especially at Webb AFB/Big Spring, for anything."

"Stopped by last Fall but museum not open. My wife's uncle Arthur Wintheiser, a private pilot, stuntman was a part of the airport history late 30's, 1940's and would like to learn more about museum on next visit during visiting hours and about any part he played in airport history. Art was involved with gov't in developing air mail service in upper mid-west. He also performed in air shows. His brother and my father-in -law walked wings and performed flying a bi-plane. do not know much more but did get an article and picture from a lady at museum some years ago. Appreciate hearing from you. May not be able to visit until November 2007. Thank you. will continue perusing site info. Great! John"

"Many happy memories for this graduate of Class 62F ... the first all-jet Pilot Training class at Webb. Half of our Basic class went to Randolph as the prototype T-38 class ... I stayed behind in the 'T-Bird' and went on to fly C-135s with MATS at Travis AFB. Instructor in Primary was Hayes Bryan, Basic was Jim Fletcher - both excellent instructors and good men. Looking forward to attending a reunion someday."

"I graduated from UPT at Webb in Feb 1970 with Class 70-05 and went on to spend five years on active duty, including one year in Thailand flying the EC-121R. Upon returning to the US, I was assigned to Loring AFB, ME and flew the KC-135A. When my tour of duty in the Air Force was complete, I went into commercial aviation and recently retired as an American Airlines Captain on the B767/757. I enjoyed my time at Webb very much and look forward to hearing from any of my old pilot training class buddies."

"I went through Jr. and Sr. High School in Big Spring and occasionally visited Webb AFB. A neighbor, Vernon Dudley was an Webb Instructor Pilot. At Texas Tech in 1957, Vernon was finishing his degree In engineering, under the AF "Bootstrap" program. He flew at Reese AFB to qualify for flight pay, and had me wear my AFROTC uniform, and took me flying in a TB-25. What a thrill for an 18 year old kid! My UPT was in 64H at Willie. One day I was assigned to fly some parts to Webb, in a fiberglass box called "the coffin", installed in the back seat. I never shut down the engine, and taxied to the runway to fly back home. That was my only contact with Webb AFB as a military officer. I come back to Big Spring for High Schools reunions, and hope to visit Hangar 25 one day. You have a very nice web site. "

"Awesome! My Dad lives in Big Spring and served in Vietnam. I love to see stuff like this. Being a military brat I grew up around it. It always reminds me that my freedom was bought with a price. "

"I was a graduate of UPT Class 73-06. I have many fond memories of my time at Big Spring. I went on to fly the F-111A and after leaving the Air Force I worked as a Test Conductor for the F-18, AV8B, F-117, U2, and currently the B2 Spirit at Edwards AFB. My son John R. was born on Christmas Day 1972 at Webb AFB Hospital! He went on to graduate from the US Air Force Academy, class of 1995. I own a Mooney M20C and hope to, someday, land on the runway where I first learned to fly! "

"My dad, Robert F. Escalle, was a cadet at Webb in Class 53-C. He graduated on May 1, 1953. He flew the T-28A Trojan and T-33 Shooting Star jet trainer. This site is a great way to remember those who served at Webb and not forget its heritage."
