"My uncle, Jimmy L. Escalle, was in Class 52-F at Webb AFB. He flew the T-28 and T-33 during his time here. He loved the flying weather in Big Spring and enjoyed the camaraderie of his fellow student pilots. He went on to fly the F-86 Sabre in Korea."
"Hoping to hook up with old friends from the Class of 73-05. UPT was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and Big Spring was a very friendly place for a young 2Lt. Had fun playing on the base fastpitch softball team. West Texas was a real trip! Thanks for the great website."
"Five Years at Webb (Oct. 71 - Oct. 76). After getting my wings, I was a T-38 "plow-back" or FAIP (first assignment instructor pilot). As I now say: "I did so well in the T-38 phase, I was made to repeat the 6 month course eight times!" Then flew T-39s and C-12s in the AF followed by 31 years with the airlines. While I did not know it then, the time spent as an IP came to be the most rewarding period of my life."
"I was stationed at Webb AFB in the 331st FIS from January 1961 until October 1962, 2 of the best years of my life. I've been lucky in that I've been able to attend the reunions in 2009 and 2011 (hoping for another in 2013). Anyway, since so many of the base buildings we knew are gone, I'm trying to put together a scrapbook of Webb AFB as it existed in the early 1960's. I have a photo of my barracks building including one of inside my room and a photo of the base chapel. Photos I would really like to have are of the entrance guard shack, base theatre, BX and chow hall, inside and out if possible. Anyway, if anyone has photos they would like to share please e-mail me. I'll be glad to pay for any postage and handling if they can't be e-mailed. "

"I was stationed at Webb from 1959 to 1961. My work place was in the office of the BOQ next to the Officers Club. I was also in the supply depot at the Officers mess. I was in barracks 202 room 26, I still have the key.
Most fun was Jackrabbit and Rattlesnake hunting at Vealmoor.
The picture is of me and my wife."
"Pilot Training at Webb AFB Class 70-04. Stayed at Webb as T-37 IP till April 1973. Retired from USAF 1988. Retired from United Air Lines 2003.
Webb was one of our best assignments. Many fond memories."
"I was stationed at Webb AFB from 1966-1970. I was a jet engine mechanic and worked at T-1, in engine change and repair. I also served as a trouble-shooter on the T-38 and T-37 aircraft. I would be interested to hear from any airman who served at T-1, or in the Engine shop during the late 60's. "
