The 92nd and 141st Air Refueling Wing Headquarters building, known as "the White House," is widely thought to be haunted by at least one ghost. Airmen have been known to proceed uneasily when called back to the office during the hours of darkness.
"If I ever forget something when I leave for the day, I pretty much wince when I realize I have to go back in there," said an Airman who works at the White House, preferring not to be named directly. "Once I get in there, I make sure to get out as fast as I can."
Mysterious footsteps can be heard in the hallways, computer monitors are found to be turned on when they were off beforehand and doors slam without explanation.
Fairchild's aircraft also come under ghostly influence. Tanker 58-0050, known as "Spook 50," appears to have its own unassigned personnel. Reports exist of unexplained shadows in an unoccupied cockpit and someone being in the boom pod. No one was there upon inspection. For these reasons, many Airmen prefer not to work on the aircraft.
A crew chief formerly stationed at Fairchild described hearing voices on the aircraft without any explanation. The voices were faint enough that no distinct words could be understood. However, the crew chief described that the voices were definitely human in nature. No one else was on the aircraft.
Regardless of true or imagined perspectives or opinions of the paranormal, Fairchild has certainly been the subject of many stories in its 71 years.

Late night haunt tag searching. As I exit my ride under the cover of darkness I hear a tune being played.....really? Taps!!? Yes its Taps being played from the Airbase loudspeakers, yet the sound drifts a bit and seems to come from all around in an enveloping sound. I searched trying not to gain anyones attention with my light, after calling out to ghosts I found it right where I had looked previously, just a bit further back. Thanks for the creepy coin!
