Back 3/4 view. Transition from atmospheric to orbital flight modes.
Front 3/4 view. General physical features. Atmospheric flight mode (L). Orbital flight mode (R).
Top view, steps 1-6: Fan assembly transitions from 90 deg VTOL mode to forward flight.
Bottom view, steps 1-6: Fan assembly transitions from 90 deg VTOL mode (open) to forward flight (closed).
If the main fuselage in compromised during any phase of flight, the crew escape module can detach from the main vessel and attempt a safe return to earth.
