Img.053 (G10) An example of the detached configuration. Illustrated is the coupling of two Magnocraft type K7 oriented base-to-base. The lower cross-section of this configuration illustrates the polarity of the propulsors in both vehicles. The mutual interaction between these propulsors produces two counter-balanced sets of forces which keep the vehicles apart, but also simultaneously fasten them together. The first set, formed by the main propulsors, causes the repelling of one Magnocraft from the other. The second set of forces, formed by the side propulsors, causes an attraction between both craft. The columns of the magnetic field joining the outlets of every pair of side propulsors facing each other are shown in black. As these columns have clearly distinguishable boundaries, they trap the light and therefore they appear as black bars. The cross-section of these bars must be square, as they reflect the shape of the Oscillatory Chambers that yield the magnetic field.
Img.053 (G10a) An external view of the whole configuration. The shape, location, and the number of visible black bars is illustrated. Notice that during an actual appearance of this configuration the shape of the lower vehicle could become distorted by the action of a magnetic lens. Just such a case of a distorted lower vehicle is illustrated on photographs from Img.162 (S1) in volume 14 of this monograph.
Img.054 (G10b) A vertical cross-section of the configuration. The mutual cooperation between propulsors is shown. An INSERT illustrates the polarity of two side propulsors facing each other, each one of which belongs to a different vehicle (notice a square black bar joining the outlets from both of these propulsors).
