Long time lurker, first time poster with a R1T reserved.

Watching the Blue Origin launch this morning and Bezos and the rest of the passengers were shuttled from the training facility to the rocket launch pad in the R1S below.

Does the trunk look like a two stage door, with the bottom section (the part with the RIVIAN logo) being able to be opened downward ?

Here's another couple pics for reference. These are of an older prototype & there's a number of changes...

The video seems to have a few moments when Bezo's has his right arm out the right / rear window. Appears the window is all the way down (his arm is flush with the door panel).

Is that standard, or custom for this special occasion?

Ha, I don’t think that’s RJ. I saw a video earlier it looks like somebody that helped him load stuff into the R1S. Although it’s kind of hard to tell, could just be a hipster with Clark Kent hair and glasses.
maybe doing the Elon-esque "sleeping on the floor at the plant" bit?
It's him, and he hasn't even changed clothes. 😉

Part of the reason they re-designed the doors/windows a while back.

I knew watching the flight would be exciting but I was surprised that I found the press conference inspiring. I haven't heard Jeff Bezos talk much and came away liking the guy (something I had not really expected given his overwhelming wealth). The commitment to working toward climate change solutions that he discussed makes me even more excited about the long term prospects of Rivian than I was previously. I'm also thinking the flight might be something worth plunking down some dollars for in a decade or so.....

Gosh, if that’s what being vegan does to your body then I think I’ll stick to eating meat. 😂

in all seriousness though, it’s good to see him at the launch with Bezos. Rivian was well represented even if the media doesn’t know what they hell it is

So it's "Blue Origin" and no blue Rivians 🤔
