The general concept of the block-transformation graph G^{αβγ} was introduced in [1]. The vertices and blocks of a graph are its members. The block-transformation graph G101 of a graph G is the graph, whose vertex set is the union of vertices and blocks of G, in which two vertices are adjacent whenever the corresponding vertices of G are adjacent or the corresponding blocks of G are nonadjacent or the corresponding members of G are incident. In this paper, we present characterizations of graphs whose block-transformation graphs G^{101} are planar, outerplanar or minimally nonouterplanar. Further we establish a necessary and sufficient condition for the block-transformation graph G^{101} to have crossing number one.
