Here's my account.
I lived in Pasir Ris ... kaypoh a bit on Saturday at 9.30am drove past White Sands and was shocked to see the human snake! all over the entire MRT, White Sands, Bus Interchange areas!!! I think findlng the start of the queue will take some effort in itself!
Worried and kiasu ... the next day I start queing at 7.45am .... just to play safe! Imagine the Air Show and SMRT folks inform us services will only start at 8.45am! I was thinking why don't they clear the crowd and prevent a buildup like Saturday! Guess after realising how stupid they are ... buses start rolling early at about 8.20am.
Now ... for the trip back ... we queued like 1 to 1.5 hours from the exhibit area just to reach the bridge over the canal where this girl happily announced over the loud hailer ... "those going to Expo MRT ... there is no queue ... after the bridge, please proceed to the right!" My my .... shouldn't they have a separate express queue for this paid service!!! Those poor souls going to Expo ... queued 1.5hrs, paid $5, then wait somemore in the bus until it filled up!!!
Totally agree with the "worst airshow" tag!
