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

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?

Blown flaps indeed. Makes work for the structures MX guys changing rivets!

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".
