Q: Air Force One arrived at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport for President Donald Trump’s visit on April 28. Is there any reason that Air Force One cannot use Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta?

—J.A. Jernigan, Atlanta

A: Air Force One can and has landed at Dobbins Air Reserve Base. The White House considers the president's destination in Atlanta, as well as air and road traffic, when selecting airports, Dobbins spokesman Master Sgt. James Branch told Q&A on the News.

In 2013, Air Force One landed at Dobbins when President Barack Obama visited Atlanta for a speech at the City of Decatur Recreation Center.

A: Owners of the current senior lifetime license (for those age 65 and up) who were born on or before June 30, 1952, remain eligible for the free license, Melissa Cummings, spokeswoman for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Resources Division, told Q&A on the News.

For those born after June 30, 1952, the senior lifetime hunting and fishing license carries a cost of $70.

This license change goes into effect July 1. It’s Georgia’s first hike to hunting and fishing fees in 25 years, the AJC previously reported.
