Abstract: We present a detailed examination about the evolution of TRACE downflow motions (sunward motions) seen above post-flare loops. We found that the times when the downflow motions are seen correspond to those of the bursts of nonthermal emissions in hard X-rays and microwave. These results mean that the downflows occurred when strong magnetic energy was released, and that they are, or at least correlated with, the reconnection outflows. We also propose an observation of downflows as the reconnection outflows by Solar-B.
