Reversors engaged prior to full touchdown? Why?

Amazing timing, great detail on the wake also..Is the reverse thrust activated before touchdown in this shot? Thought systems prevented that happening?

Perfect shot! Great details... Reverser can be activated after main landing gears have fully touched down (even though nose gear is still in the air)

Reverse Thrusters CAN be engaged when the main landing gears are on the ground which is the case for this picture though you cannot see it. Other than that this picture is very detailed and stunning.

Nice capture! The reverse are engaged only after touch down of the main wheels, in this shot it does look like its still in the air but the main gears are actually on the ground n reverse kicked in before the nose wheel came down.

You can deploy the thrust reversers with out the nose wheel down as long as the mains are down. Fantastic shot, the detail is incredible

The A345 is really an amazing aircraft! maybe the main gear has already made the touchdown?
