When I see ideas like this (aircraft transforms from one to three planes), it makes me thrilled to be an engineer. New ways of thinking, new combinations to accomplish missions, new challenges to be solved. To make this work, I can see application of orbital rendezvous mathematics applied to aircraft, I can see new structural mechanics, coordinated avionics, autonomous combined with man-piloted systems. What can you see? Write it down, think about it, expand it, analyze it.
