Y-59 Albatross


The three wing configuration and huge engines make the Y-59 Albatross a very fast, stable ship.  When the ship lands, the keel swings up through the center of the fuselage.  The upper wings also fold down.  Landing gear then swings out from the wings and keel, balancing the ship on a tripod.  The cockpit canopy and doors swing up to let out the pilot, who only has to crawl down a short ladder to get out.  The pilot lies on his stomach to control the Albatross.  The "seat" is contoured to support his chest and arms while still allowing him to view the instruments.
