Reverser question

Recommended Posts

One of the questions I got on one of my youtube videos was, why does the slats retract when the reversers are engaged, then return back to their previous position when disengaged? I started wondering myself, so I thought I'd ask about it here! I presume it has something to do with the airflow of the reversers, but I'm not sure.Thanks

It's to protect them from foreign object damage while the reversers are spooled up.
