My question for any who would know is:
Why does the DC-9 ; MD-80/90 ; B717 have a nose gear spray deflector?

I have never seen it on any other aircraft and it seems curious on this one. The only thing I could think of why its there is that that it would prevent water ingestion into the engines, but the location of the engines on these aircraft would seem to make it irrelavent.
Anyone have any insight?
