One of the best pictures of a landing aircraft I've ever seen! You can see all the features of the aircraft visible from outside in operation: Slats, Flaps, all the five Spoilers and the engines Thrust Reverser. The background is very clean and clear as well.

Great shot, the spray looks fantastic!
Can someone please clear up how come the engines open up for the reversing process here instead of what I'm used to seeing with the Airbuses and that is the little flaps that come out of the engines instead. Is it simply a choice of the airline or just something different from Airbus?
Great shot though!

To the commenter below me: The little flaps that came out of the engines is for CFM engines, while this is an IAE engines, so the thrust-reversing mechanism's quite different.
