2. Comments:

        a. On the move from LZ WELCH to LZ TWO BITS:

1. Bn should receive all tail numbers and call signs of birds assigned for an airlift, this would facilitate the control of the aircraft.

2. LZs should be checked by the Bn CO at a minimum of 24 hours in advance when possible to insure adequate amount of time for units to make necessary improvements.

        b. On the move from LZ TWO BITS to LZ ABBEY:

1. Bn COs LOH or CC should be available prior to the lift birds to prevent undue delay.

2. Gunships (s) whould be standing by prior to lift birds arrival also.
