It looks to me, when this plane is about to land it causes some sparks when that thing near the nosewheel hits the runway??
Can anyone tell me more about it?

Just wondering why wasn't the NLG gravel deflector used for the NGs ever
|Quoting SlamClick (Reply 4):|
It is part of a gravel runway kit that includes vortex interrupers seen in that photo below each engine intake. As far as I know such an option was never available for any but the -200.

Intake vortex dissipater for the JT8D

Something like that would be required for any engine. They all suck hard enough to pick up gravel etc.
