For the leading American aircraft designers NASA is holding a contest. The basic conditions in the development of the aircraft are:
flight speed - not less than 85% of the speed of sound,
load capacity - from 23 to 46 tons
and range - more than 7,000 miles.
The competition also will take part the Russian company KRET (Concern "Radio-electronic technology»)
with the project of the future liner MS-21, where the on-board equipment of 80% will be produced in Russia.
The project, tentatively called Icon-II was developed by the "Boeing". Supersonic aircraft provides a record low noise and consumes significantly less fuel than existing models.
