Lockheed Martin and NASA begin building 'son of Concorde' X-59 plane

Lockheed Martin has begun construction on the next generation of supersonic airliner. Lockheed’s famous Skunk Works will build a prototype of the X-59 QueSST for NASA. The X-59 should produce very quiet sonic booms. It’s unusual shape will dissipate shock waves.
