Omega, I was in washington doing the Prop change on that U/S frame - once we changed the prop during the ground runs the FCU gave up the ghost a 2 day trip turned into a week.

Nothing better than doing ground runs at the end of the runway at Dullas International all i could see behind the frame was a line of landing lights from the aircraft on approach.

I do believe that frame was the last one to 'go metric'.
