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.
