Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner XC-MEX Mexican Air Force | Hamburg Fuhlsbüttel HAM/EDDH

Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner XC-MEX arriving at Hamburg with the Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on board. This is the first landing of a Dreamliner at Hamburg as far as I know. Powered by two General Electric GEnx-1B. The wing leading edge has full span slotted slats and the trailing edge has two sections of single slotted Fowler flaps. Note that the inboard ailerons droop down as flaps, so they are essentially flaperons. The fly-by-wire flight control system (FBW FCS) keeps all these control surfaces working in harmony.
