I noticed yesterday for the first time what appear to be "clamshell" spoilers at the rear of a Fokker F28. The clamshells when closed look like a tailcone, but there appear to be two acutators on each side of the a/c to open the spoilers. Because the F-28 has no reverse thrusters, I assume these are some form of speed brake? Anyone?
