Yes....they are internal. Those grates on the back third of the engine is where the exhaust exits the cowling.


OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

So we can't see them from the exterior, not like MD80 reverse thrusters ?

I thought engines 1&3 had clamshell type reversers which are quite obvious when they operate?

I should qualify that statement a little.

I did see those type of buckets installed in two cases of 727. One was footage of the prototye. The other was the Super 37 conversion that goes over to the -200 engines in the 1 and 3 positions.

The internal type reversers are behind the grates in these tail shot
