The tarmac between the two hangars was a busy part of Moton Field. Cadets arriving by bus were dropped off here and went to their duties in preparation for flight training. Others boarded the buses to return to the Tuskegee Institute campus. Fuel trucks and the medical truck were often parked here too. Imagine what the cadet felt the first time he stepped off the bus and onto Moton Field's tarmac.

We spent a lot of time waiting for the bus to pick us up...because we all had to be there at the time he arrived, or we would get left. William Fuller, 2001

Buses pick up and drop off cadets for flight training at Moton Field. Half of the cadets flew in the morning and studied in the afternoon; the other half did the reverse.
