Real life ‘Iron man’ sets new record

(AFP) — Richard Browning, founder and chief test pilot of Gravity Industries, has soared into the record books with the brand new Guinness World Records title for the fastest speed in a body-controlled jet engine power suit.

On a dramatic day at Lagoona Park, Reading, Browning achieved a speed of 32.02 mph (51.53 km/h) on his third and final timed attempt before mistiming a turn and dropping into the lake in celebration of Guinness World Records Day.
