Most or all enlisted personnel attended Basic Military Training (BMT) at Lackland AFB, or perhaps another location. Lackland AFB created the BMT Flight Photograph Project in an effort to collect approximately 119,000 USAF Basic Training flight photographs from the inception of the USAF in 1947 to the present. The collection includes photos from all bases that conducted Air Force basic training including Lackland AFB, Texas, Sampson AFB, New York, Parks AFB, California, Keesler Field, Mississippi, Amarillo and Sheppard AFB, Texas. This collection will also include Air Force basic training that was conducted overseas.

Go to the Lackland main BMT page. In the center of the page you will see 'VIEW FLIGHT PHOTOS'. Click on VIEW FLIGHT PHOTOS, then click on the decade you completed basic training. Once you select the decade, select the year and month you completed basic. Your Flight photo may or may not be there. If your flight photo is not there and you have such a photo, instructions are available to help you scan and submit your flight photo.
