Physiologic assessment was performed by means of postflight urinalysis for 8 pilots who flew F-4C aircraft for 18 hours. Flight effects were neither numerous nor of large magnitude, nor were the pilots unduly fatigued. The flight-induced, physiologic changes included 1 increased 17-hydroxycorticosteroid excretion, which implies adrenocortical stimulation, and 2 decreased excretion of uric acid, potassium, and urine, which suggests metabolic depression.
