Burn it or if it's a must, perform a over weight landing (if over weight).

To burn fuel fast, set full flaps, lower the gear and deploy the speed brakes. Then hold a safe airspeed for the holding pattern. Because of the drag produced by the flaps, gear and speedbrakes, the N1 and N2 will increase and the fuel will burn much faster.


 

With kind regards, Bogdan Misko.

I was under the impression deploying the speed brakes past flaps 5 was a No-No.

I asked a friend who flies the NG about this once and he told me that he had never used the speed brake while having deployed flaps in the real bird
