Real-Life Iron Man Sets World Record

Mr Browning reached 32.02mph and created a new record in the £40,000 suit which he himself hopes to ‘smash’ in the future

Yesterday, a British man broke the Guinness World Record for the fastest speed in a body controlled jet engine powered suit, reaching a speed of 51 kilometers per hour in an experiment conducted over a lake in England.

Founder and chief test pilot of Gravity Industries, Richard Browning, soared into the record books reaching a speed of 32.02mph during his third attempt at Lagoona Park in Reading. His name is Richard Browning, and he owns a company called Gravity which is dedicated to developing his invention, the body-controlled jet engine suit named Daedalus.

Adjudicator Pravin Patel from Guinness World Records was on hand to make sure that Browning's speed was measured accurately over at least 100 metres.

Browning said he was "delighted" to have set a record.
