  1. Boom Supersonic Joins Flight Research For XB-1 Flight Tests
    Boom Supersonic is heating up the supersonic race tangibly. Now they have joined forces with Flight Research (FRI) which is a US training support and services company. They will work with them to test the Boom Supersonic's XB-1 Flight demonstrator in the supersonic corridor of the Mojave Desert. Boom is using the so-called XB-1 as a scaled-down version of the final aircraft which will be much larger and called Overture.
  2. The XB-1 Flight demonstrator is already under construction by Boom Supersonic at their Colorado facility. The aircraft is expected to start flight testing as soon as 'later this year'. To help in this testing Flight Research will be providing a Northrop T-38 Talon Supersonic aircraft which will serve as a chase plane in low supersonic mode of the XB-1. It will also be used to train the XB-1 pilots too.
