Default E-3A Control Surface Configuration

Ok, this one is way out in "Eye Candy" land, but...

On final into Nellis, the E-3A had all flaps down (good) but all four spoilers came up at the same time the flaps and gear went down.

On touchdown, all surfaces just popped back to their cruise configuration positions. No animation of any kind, just *poof* flaps are up and spoilers are down...

By comparison, the KC-135 landed and rolled out with flaps down smoothly retracting them as it reached the turn off at mid field. (However, no spoilers were deployed on touchdown...)

Just something I happened to notice dabbling in the NTTR Mission Editor tonight...

Thanks ED!
