During this time the landing room at Crissy Field will be very restricted. It is requested that all aviators of the Army, Navy and Marine Corps, and civilians be cautioned to carefully examine Crissy Field from the air before attempting to land, and, under no circumstances, to schedule a flight to Crissy Field, which will require a landing after dark during this period.
