Not sure, but if I where a betting man I would say this unit is back in service. will check back next Monday.I wish I could say that's indeed the case, but it unfortunately isn't. The 17 is still OOS, and was inside the engine house this weekend. There is a respectable amount of work that it needs before it's operational. From what I've been told, when that occurs (if at all) is up in the air at the moment.

It's not large enough to accommodate the 17, 7750, 101 & 102 at the same time, so 17 may have been moved out to get the other 3 engines back-to-back-to-back in there (likely one of them would've still stuck out the back end of the house if this was the case).
