53 years have passed since the world’s first supersonic airliner, Concorde 001, rolled out from its assembly hall in Toulouse, France. Yet, what was meant to be the harbinger of the supersonic age retired from the skies in 2003, leaving us to wonder if and when passengers would be able to enjoy supersonic speed.
For the first time in history, an independently-developed supersonic aircraft will be unveiled to the world. XB-1’s complete assembly marks a turning point for future supersonic travel, by demonstrating the key technologies for safe, efficient, and sustainable supersonic flight.
