Wow I never knew about this, very nice photo and interesting deflector. I am curious to see how this thing is stowed when the gear retracts! Thank you for a most interesting picture!

Actually, it's to keep the gravel from deflecting into the engines. Very common here in Canada

Common in Alaska, too. At least one gravel runway still used by 737s on the North Slope.
