Abstract : Thermostabilized bite-sized meat items were evaluated under operational conditions by crewmemebers aboard FB-111A aircraft in missions of more than five hours. Food items were: roast beef, ham, and chicken. Results indicated that these bite-sized foods were highly acceptable to the crew, and were suitable for use in a comparatively small cockpit. A few evaluators requested more variety in, and heating of, food--and questioned the nutritional implications of the 'all-meat' fare. (Author)
