EBP was the last to be delivered with Pratt and Whitney engines. All 200's were delivered in the orange livery (EBS being the last). The new (1984) livery started with the 300's.

I always remembered it with EBP (Pratt & Whitney) as the last Pratt. The first Roller was EBR (Rolls Royce).

The first Rolls Royce 747 for Qantas was ECB, followed by EBQ, then EBR.

My first 747 flight that I remember was in ECB in 1996.

I then did a couple of hundred hours in a Piper Chieftain of the same registration many years later.
