Boom's supersonic demonstrator.
XB-1's build is nearing completion. Our goal? Prove key technologies for safe, efficient and sustainable supersonic travel.
“Faster travel brings the world’s people, cultures, and experiences within reach. Life happens in person, and at Boom we see breaking the time barrier as a moral imperative. XB1 is the first step in bringing supersonic travel back to the world.”
With a spectacular Colorado sunrise as their backdrop, Boom team members started the first phase in the bonding of XB-1's cockpit and nose landing gear into the fuselage skin: sanding with a grit blast. Work then moved into the hangar as bonding got underway.
From the balcony overlooking Boom's hangar floor, you can identify XB-1's nose, cockpit, main landing gear bay structure, wings & tooling for its nearly 50-foot forward fuselage.
