The worst organized shuttle service that I've ever seen. Everyone who parked at the Dobbins lot had the worst experience trying to get to the air show. Robert Quigley should be fired over this and how the shuttle service worked on Sat. 2+ hours to get on a bus for a 5 minute ride was the worse. The ride back was even worse because the Cobb County police had all the gates blocked off not allowing any busses back into the lots. I'll never go to this event again!

Amen! This was indeed the worst orgainized shuttle service, and I agree with Tom that the person responsible should be fired. We were essentially held hostage on the base with no other way to return to our cars except through one narrow passenger loading point to busses that were crammed into a narrow street. Unbelievable! This was our first and last time for this event.

100K is way off. One particular security lane on Saturday processed around 2000-2500 people. There were 6-8 lanes; do the math.
Someone there told me they arrived at the Lockheed lot at 10:30 and finally got to the venue at 1:00 in the afternoon. I can't say that's entirely true, but it seems in line with what the others are saying,
On the other hand, Sunday seemed fine.
