If I have got the numbers right, the O3B mission marked another reuse milestone:

There are 17 active boosters that have flown at least once, with a total of 170 fligths. That means: SpaceX achieved an average of 10 flights per booster.

Booster - flights
1058   18
1060   17
1061   16
1062   16
1063   14
1064   4
1065   4
1067   14
1069   10
1071   12
1073   11
1075   7
1076   9
1077   8
1078   5

The Falcon Heavy side boosters 1064 and 1065 should be count as one for the number of flights to orbit. So that is 166 flights with 17 boosters with 9.76 flights  average per booster.

Your 10 flights average will happened after the next 4 Falcon launches. In about 10 days.  ;)

And in just shy of the last three years, 175 consecutive successful landings in a row vs 158 total launches in 17 years

That part is wild. Also, just 3 of the 150+ Falcon launches in the last two years did not include one or two successful landings, and maybe 5% didn't exclusively use flight-proven boosters. The default for every other launch on Earth is a rounding error on SpaceX's manifest.

Made me think... I'm pretty sure that EVERY SINGLE Falcon launched in the last two years has had either a booster or fairing recovered and reused. That's a milestone all on its own tbh
