Over the Atlantic Ocean starting the descent. The bus was coming down like a brick so speedbrakes were deployed for some extra drag. Nice blue sky and sea.

That must have been an interesting experience. Probably scary for anyone looking at the wing who does not understand flying the way we do here on A.net.

Never seen that deployed on the first rate of descent. Must be close to the airspace, or otherwise

Great shot. Deploying spoilers to increase the rate of descent is actually common.
