Take-off from runway 16 was rejected at 145 knots due to an Engine Indication and Crew Alerting System (EICAS) message relating to a spoiler/flaps configuration warning. The warning was subsequently determined to be false. As this was the third rejected take-off by this aircraft since 8 March, number 10 Slat Position Switch, Spoiler Handle and the Proximity Switch Electronic Unit (PSEU) were changed as a precaution. The defect has not recurred. The reason for the EICAS message was not determined.
