The first 100 way was probably the most illusive formation ever attempted. For at least two years people traveled all over the US and Canada following the organizers in their efforts to gather both the aircraft and talent to get it done. Finally at the 1986 US Nationals in Muskogee, Oklahoma it all came together.

Funny I stumbled across this tread tonight as I was drinking with my wife's uncle D-7406 who was part of the 100 way that came together at the US Nationals in Muskogee, Oklahoma and followed the attempt all over the US and Canada. I looked at his log book and there was plenty of 99 way's with the little someone funneled or was low comment. If you need any info I would be happy to put you in contact with him.

I was just a teenager when that record was done, mom was the judge for almost all of the OK nationals so we were forced to go every year as kids. Laugh If I remember right the saying for those two years while trying to get it was, "99 again". :) They got it on their "extra" last attempt early morning before Nationals started, if I remember correctly.
