NASA has teamed with Honeywell Aerospace to help bring its dream of the return of commercial supersonic flight a bit closer to reality. NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center and Honeywell have flight tested a cockpit display that allows pilots to visualize the location of sonic booms before they occur. With this knowledge, aircraft can change course and minimize the boom over populated areas.
