Hey I just noticed a picture on here of an A340 reversing its thrust and I noticed these redish orange things comming out of each engine, can anyone explain what they are? thanks!

Can you post the picture here?
Anyways, I'm guessing those are the thrust deflectors, I believe there are 4 of those on each engine.
