Some air travelers were a little more concerned than usual about flying Monday after President Obama announced the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
But it didn't stop them from traveling. Many of the people we talked to at the Valdosta Regional Airport told us they're just happy he's dead.
Sandy Tacheny and her kids are leaving the Valdosta Regional Airport and making their way back home to Spokane, Washington. The news of Bin Laden's Death made her somewhat uneasy about traveling when she first heard about it but she didn't change her travel plans.
"I was a little nervous initially," said Tacheny.
Bette Aufenthie says it was a bit of a surprise to hear about Bin Laden. She's a little concerned about flying.
"I flew after 9/11 so I guess I'm a little worried about it not terribly worried," said Aufenthie.
Some passengers we talked to say the news of Bin Laden's death brought back memories of flying after the 9/11 attacks.
"That was really scary at first," said Aufenthie. "I remember a gentleman just getting up to stretch and people were ready to grab him."
Kayon Searcy says he fears the taliban may retaliate.
"The influence is still out there so you're kind of relieved but you still have to be realistic since there's still similar minded people on this earth.I'm going to continue to fly," said Searcy. "I don't have any regrets about getting on the plane today."
Sandy Tacheny says people should just be vigilant.
"Be safe and thank the military for what they do for us," said Tacheny.
Even with the news Bin Laden's death, with the line of passengers going through security at the Valdosta Regional Airport, it seemed to be business as usual.
The U.S. Department of State has issued a Worldwide Caution to remind American travelers to keep a high level of vigilance and to take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness.
