NASA said in a video documenting the missile plane: The video was recorded between May 2019 to June 2021, and shows the manufacture of the X-59 vehicle.
The snapshots show the manufacture of the main parts of the plane, and then their installation on top of each other, until the construction of the external structure of the plane was completed.
The plane is scheduled to take off on its first test flights in 2022.
And NASA announced in 2019 that it had concluded a deal amounting to a quarter of a billion dollars with Lockheed Martin; To contribute to the manufacture of aircraft of this model.
And the US space agency formed three work crews to build the airframe, and their task was respectively to equip: the fuselage, the wings, and the tail.
During the final assembly process, the innovative cockpit external vision system will be added to the aircraft.
This aircraft is distinguished from others by the low sound it emits, and its high speed that exceeds the speed of sound.
The X-59 has the ability to quietly break through the sound barrier, reducing turbulence in the general public.
