100 Mission Celebrations

The celebration that followed a 100-mission tour started with the F-105 crews at Korat in January 1966. This grew into an elaborate ritual which continued past the end of the 100-mission tour policy. The ceremonies varied between units and bases -- for most it involved a fly-by, a red carpet, getting hosed down or dunked into a tub of water, a parade on the flight line, and ended in a big celebratory party.
