I assume these new flap hinge fairings were designed in order to improve aerodynamics, sounds logical, some sort of late "PIP". So far only KLM equipped their MD-11s with these special flap hinge fairings.

These mods were also on the MD 90 series and some earlier models.

Anyway, efficient or not, it remains a splendid airliner, I just cannot get enough of these PW4460/4462 or CF6-80C2D1F roar, it seems that 3 of them combined produce quite an unique sound that could not be mistaken with something else.
