Picture of Aeromexico 777 landing in Guangzhou...is that the Ram Air Turbine hanging out behind the mains (click View Large if you're old like me)? I thought it was forward of the wing for better airflow!

Part of their test flights since they aquired the plane from Varig. The plane was not in exactly the best condition but AM got a good deal for it and it should be refurbished just as good as the brand new ones they just got earlier this year.

It was probably positioning there for maintenance, and they tested the RAT on the way in, so they would not need to do it later.
