"Today we are witnessing history," stated John Clark, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics vice president.
“An x-plane is a symbol of our collective ambition to redefine the future...
and in this case, it's the future of supersonic travel,” said NASA Deputy Administrator Pam Melroy.
NASA's Quesst mission is testing the experimental aircraft to see if it can fly without producing the loud sonic booms associated with supersonic flights.
This breakthrough technology is a beacon guiding us into the future.

NASA says pilots employ an external vision system with a forward-facing camera.
A cockpit-mounted display screen and specialised image processing software are used to provide a "augmented reality view."
