Perhaps the most iconic experimental aircraft ever flown, the Bell X-1 is famous for being the first manned aircraft to break the sound barrier in level flight, without the assistance of gravity. The feat was accomplished on the fiftieth flight of the XS-1 aircraft, under the control of test pilot Charles ''Chuck'' Yeager, then an Air Force captain.
This aircraft was a first of firsts, breaking open not only the sound barrier, but also an entire range of knowledge. Dozens of follow up aircraft of both similar and radically different types would be built to test the absolute extreme edge of aeronautical and aerospace knowledge, a series of X-planes that continues today. Preserved in the National Air and Space Museum alongside the Spirit of St. Louis, the Bell X-1 stands as one of America's greatest technological treasures.
This historic aircraft is reproduced to the highest of standards, with extreme attention to detail and superb quality in construction, making it a centerpiece model for any collection.
