Abstract : A flight evaluation was conducted to determine if use of the 2% gold visor in daylight hours degraded performance of flight duties. Thirteen TAC instructor pilots flew 17 sorties, representative of TAC mission profiles, in the F4C aircraft at Davis-Monthan AFB, Ariz. Slightly diminished vision under cloudy conditions was experienced by some individuals. Satisfactory completion of the missions was accomplished, however. The 2% gold visor is recommended for use in TAC aircraft during daylight hours for eye protection from nuclear detonations. (Author)
