"I was at Webb from Nov.1967 to Oct.1968. I first worked in the engine shop and later as an engine trouble shooter on the flight line.
Because of this site,I have recently been reunited with two of my best friends that I haven't seen since 1968.
My time at Webb was the best of my life and I enjoyed it every day."

"I recently finished UNFORGOTTEN HERO and thoroughly enjoyed the book. Although I never met Jimmy Escalle, I feel some affinity to the story. In 1951 my family moved to Big Spring, Texas, where I started the 7th grade. Webb AFB was a small part of my life when I attended Armed Forces Day events and later when my BSA Air Scout unit met on the base. Like Jimmy, I yearned to fly and was fortunate to join USAF pilot training class 64H and can identify with the camaraderie he felt with his fellow student pilots. Lt. Escalle’s nephew Jim accurately relates the life experiences that prepared Jimmy for the leadership and technical skills needed to become a top pilot flying for finest Air Force in the world. Thankfully, Jim Escalle has now told the story of his uncle’s wonderful life and untimely sacrifice, defending the freedoms we enjoy as Americans."
"I enjoyed seeing this information about the base. I was stationed here from 1964-1966 as a Flight Engineer on the aircraft with a test pilot. I have many fond memories of those years spent flying almost every day. Our first daughter was born at Webb during those years. Thanks for your efforts to preserve the once was time.

"My husband, Terry "Jack" Hadley, went through UPT Class 65F. We returned to Webb in 1970 where he was aT-37 instructor until 1976. Sadly, we lost Jack Christmas Day, 2011. We had many fond memories of Webb and Big Spring. We have been in contact over the years with many of the people we knew there. Of course, our favorite place to eat was the Spanish Inn. We ate there again on our way to Midland about 8 years ago. Big Spring Rodeo was also a favorite!"
"I graduated in Class 71-08. As I was passing by Webb AFB & had so many memories here I just had to look around. Hanger 25 was closed since it was in the evening but I looked through the windows and was pleased to see a lot of memories preserved. Would be glad to hear from any old comrades."
"My uncle was in Class 52-F at Webb AFB. His class was the first to take both phases (T-28 and T-33) of advanced training at Webb. When he first arrived it was called Big Spring AFB, but was soon renamed Webb. He enjoyed his time in Big Spring and really enjoyed the flying there. He went on to fly F-86 Sabres in Korea. My dad was also at Webb (Class 53-C) and said the same thing about the base. "
