The first step toward wing bend tests on XB-1, Boom's supersonic demonstrator, has successfully wrapped up in the hangar. Using RSflite portable ultrasound equipment, the team looked inside XB-1's wing structure, captured images and checked for defects. Following the wing bend tests scheduled in early 2020, these before images will be compared to after images to look for anomalies, foreign object debris and non-visible damage below the surface . So we're talking about a niche within a niche. Still, overwater.
Boom's two test pilots were also onsite to verify that all aspects of the wing met their approval.

This study describes the start/unstart characteristics of a finite and rectangular supersonic biplane wing. Two wing models were tested in wind tunnels with aspect ratios of 0.75 (model A) and 2.5 (model B). The models were composed of a Busemann biplane section. The tests were carried out using supersonic and transonic wind tunnels. Boom Supersonic's XB-1 will take to the skies in 2021 to clear a path for the Overture, a supersonic jet that will continue the legacy left by the Concorde such as a non-axisymmetrical low-boom nose, a low-drag/low-boom wing geometry, a lifting aft-fuselage, and reverse-cambered horizontal tails which are applied to the D-SEND#2 air- plane will be demonstrated in the drop test.

Supersonic start-up Boom gave an update on the flight test programme of XB-1, its Mach-2.2 demonstrator aircraft, at the Paris Air Show 2019. Boom founder and CEO Blake Scholl announced that XB-1 - the subscale prototype for Boom's supersonic 75-seat business class jet Overture - would now move from the build phase to the testing phase, with the first flights set to take place in 2020 Another way to express this is wing span. The fuselage of even a large supersonic aircraft is very sleek and with enough angle of attack and wing span the plane can fly so high that the boom by the fuselage is not important. The larger the wing span, the greater the downwards impulse which can be applied to the air, the greater the boom felt. A smaller wing span favors small aeroplane designs.
