  1. 3-9-4. LINE UP AND WAIT (LUAW)
    3-10-5. LANDING CLEARANCE

    This change removes use of the word “unrestricted" associated with low approach in FAA Order JO 7110.65, Air Traffic Control, paragraphs 3-9-4, Line Up and Wait (LUAW), and 3-10-5, Landing Clearance. An “unrestricted" low approach is itself a low approach; the term “unrestricted" is not deemed necessary.
