SuperstructureEdit

The frame which incorperates; the cockpit, wings, fuel, stilts, and at the rear are the engines and spoiler to ais lift and stability. The craft is capable of vertical take off and landing and therefore requires no undercarriage. Hudraulic stilts enable the craft to lift clear of the pods.

A pod, which is the hold of the ship, also has undercarriage which enables the aircraft to reach the launch pad , and once locked into position, becomes integral with the main body. Pods have a vast capacity for storing the rescue equipment and machines. They are stored in the same hanger ready for use and easy loading.
