The latest member to the club Col. Phillip Murdock, 332nd EOG deputy commander as of April 30, 2010.

Photo Caption: Col. Phillip Murdock, 332nd EOG deputy commander, taxies down the runway at Joint Base Balad, on April 30, 2010, after completing his 3,000th sortie hour in an F-16 Fighting Falcon. This accomplishment also coincides with Colonel Murdock’s “fini-flight” at JBB. The "fini-flight" is a long standing practice of both the USAF and RAAF. This time-honored tradition warrants a gala event where fire trucks join the crowd in welcoming the pilot back from his final flight and hosing him down with the vehicle’s water hose.
