Supersonic plane concept testing. Scale model of Lockheed Martin's supersonic advanced concept aircraft being tested in a supersonic wind tunnel. This concept proposes using two engines mounted under the wings and one on top of the fuselage. The design is one of a number being investigated in partnership with NASA as a means to lower the noise impact of sonic booms in commercial supersonic aircraft.
