This tailcone speed brake is also on the F100. The most noticeable feature
of this system is that it deploys at approx. 100 ft radalt when pre-armed,
so you see this "thing" start to move a few seconds prior to touchdown. I
always wondered why you would want it before landing; is this to limit
balooning on the flare?
