"BOE5" returning from its first test flight. On short final for RWY 16R, will join the Qatar Amiri Flight fleet. Note the new RAT (Ram Air Turbine) for the 747-8 deployed under the right wing near the fuselage. The clouds parted and the sun shone through before setting just in time for this special moment after it had been raining hard all day. [Nikon D800+70-200mm f/2.8]

Why deploying RAT on landing? might have electrical problems.

Thanks everyone. I believe the RAT was deployed just for testing or just in case. It was a first test flight ;-)
