Iron Man Flight Sets First World Record – proud of suit that can take flight

British inventor Richard Browning has set the first world speed record for “flying a body-controlled jet engine power suit”.

On a dramatic day at Lagoona Park, Reading, the British entrepreneur went for a challenge. Richard Browning achieved a speed of 32.02 mph (51.53 km/h) on his third timed attempt. But not before mistiming a turn and dropping into the lake.

Browning has been awarded the Guinness World Records title for the fastest speed in a body-controlled jet engine power suit.  A brand new title created just for him.

Browning’s suit, known as Daedalus, consists of a specially designed exoskeleton, four arm-mounted gas turbine engines and two hip-mounted gas turbine engines.

Quotes: Browning – it is an indulgent toy useful for the future.  Every time you take this equipment out you never really know how it is going to work out.

Browning is a hero despite a splash or two. Watched by team from Guinness World Records
