11/9/2012 - TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- Brig. Gen. John K. McMullen, 325th Fighter Wing commander, took his final flight at Tyndall in an F-22 Raptor, Nov. 9.

The final sortie, referred to as a 'fini flight,' marks the end of a pilot's flying time at a unit. In keeping with tradition, General McMullen was hosed down with water by his wife, Kimberly, and daughter, Carly, while exiting the aircraft.

General McMullen will permanently change stations to Ramstein Air Base, Germany at the end of this month.

The general will relinquish command to Col. David Graff, current 325th FW vice commander, during a change of command ceremony Nov. 14. The ceremony will be held at 9:30 a.m. in Hangar 1.
