Some four miles southwest of Phan Thiet along the top of a high bluff overlooking the South China Sea lay LZ Betty, the home of Task Force South. Task Force South was responsible for military operations in the four southern provinces of II Corps, Ninh Thuan, Binh Thuan, Tuyen Duc, and Lam Dong. It controlled two American battalions paired with elements of the 23rd ARVN Division. From September 1969 to December 1970, one of those battalions was the 1st Battalion (Mechanized), 50th Infantry. The central feature of LZ Betty was the airstrip above the bluff that paralleled the sea; the middle third of the runway actually ran uphill, making takeoff and landing interesting as attested by the wrecked aircraft accumulating along its southern end.
