LZ ( Landing Zone ) Betty, Phan Thiet

This photo shows LZ Betty, and Army Airfield in 1968. The runway runs through the upper center. The South China Sea shows in the uper right corner, with the 192 AHC maintenance area just below. The revetments for parking the Hueys of the 192nd are just on the other side of the runway, with the tents just above.

The area right in the center, with a high berm, is the ammo dump for the 3/506/101.

The only permanent buildings on the airfield at the time were at the East end of the runway, to the left. The runway was at 070 and 250 degrees, and most of the year the wind was straight down 07.
