More information:

Thrust reversers direct jet engine thrust forward to create a braking effect. The CFM56-5 engine variant as shown in this photo uses a pivoting door mechanism to block the airflow through the engine bypass duct (where most of the engine thrust is generated) and deflect it outwards and forwards.
