By the end of 2020, the US company Lockheed Martin will complete the assembly of the first “Pacific” X-59 supersonic aircraft model under construction in the QueSST project.
The new Lockheed Martin aircraft will undergo its first tests this year and will make its first flight in 2021, according to Live Science.

The QueSST program, built within the X-59 aircraft, will allow technologies to be developed that will reduce the noise level of ultrasonic aircraft in the future. This will allow airplanes to operate supersonic flights over residential areas, which are now prohibited by international law.
Earlier, a spokesman for Lockheed Martin said the plane could fly from New York to London within three hours and 45 minutes.
