Take a look at this pic and the caption. Are the reverse thrusters deployed during take off? If yes does anyone know why?

That plane's not taking off. The spoilers are up and the flaps are at a good 35 degrees at least. It's an error in the subtitle.

Not the subtitle but rather the comments from the photographer.

Thanks, did not see the spoilers deployed.

Could have been an aborted take-off. Although I would assume he would've mentioned it.

>>>Could have been an aborted take-off.

The trailing edge flaps are deployed pretty far for a takeoff setting. Looks to me like a landing...

BTW, B747ca, most everyone I know calls these things "thrust reversers". "Reverse thrusters" are on rocket ships...  Big grin

Just a note, there are no commercial aircraft with reverse thursters that I know of.


Dear moderators: No.

We're Nuts,

Pretty much all airliners have reverse thrusters.

Maybe the pilot's backing down the taxiway? He probably thinks he needs a little more length on this taxiway compared to some of the others he's taken off from.  Big grin

It's definately a landing. The inboard slats retract when reversers are deploted, spoilers are up flaps at 30.
