Awesome shot! FYI, blown flaps use the exhaust from the engines over the flaps to create extra lift. For those interested, I encourage you to research "Coanda effect".

A visitor from Japan posted Mon August 13, 2012:
Blown flaps indeed. Makes work for the structures MX guys changing rivets!

This is almost like in the joke "A pig flies over a house and then..."

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 8, 2012:
Yes I thought this too was an LAX shot too, I am familiar with Spangdahlem this is where CAP has an overseas squadron.

What's this about blown flaps?

Nice that you can clearly see the C-17 has blown flaps, something I didn't know until this picture!
