NASA’s X-59 ‘quiet’ supersonic jet heads for a new red, white and blue paint job

NASA’s experimental supersonic jet is ready to rock a red, white and blue color scheme ahead of it’s first flight in which it will quietly shatter the sound barrier over Earth.

The X-59 Quiet SuperSonic Technology (Quesst) jet moved to the paint barn at Lockheed Martin Skunk Works’ facility in Palmdale, California, on Nov. 14, 2023. The jet’s color scheme was changed from green to a white body with a sonic blue underside and red wing accents.
