There are probably a few ways to achieve this using different view tools:
Normal to the front plane (right click > normal to).
-Normal to again to get the back face, then hold shift and press up twice.
-Use alt and left or right to rotate the current view around in 15 degree increments.
Once in the right orientation, press space (orientation toolbar), Update Views button, and select the Front plane to make this the new default if desired.
