1944 US Army Air Force Air Crew Lunch MRE Review Pilot Ration Vintage Meal Ready to Eat Taste Test

  • Published on Jul 6, 2018
  • Never before filmed, this WW2 Army Air Forces Air Crew Lunch was a small boxed ration issued to pilots and airman on long flight missions as a morale & energy boosting snack. Most of the remaining units are in private and un-seen collections. For your virtual museum viewing pleasure and at no cost, I give a detailed analysis on the ration's purpose, history, and on each component and short change nothing in this incredible experience.
    On my top 3 rarest and most amazing ration finds to date. It was worth every penny of $320 - and the box will now have no more degradation from the slowly but surely melting candy inside it.
    An old friend named Kristy had actually located this very ration 2 years ago for me. It was out of my price range then. It disappeared and then re-appeared recently for only $20 more than it had been priced at before. This time I could not let the opportunity pass. Confirmed it was the same one as the stains on that last unit matched 100% to this one.
    July 2018 will be nothing but WW2 reviews. Up next is a very rare and never before filmed Navy survival kit that weighs 13 pounds.

    And thank you everyone for watching & subscribing - hope
    you enjoyed this one, as I certainly did making it!
