Richard Browning, 40, an ex-commando has broken his own world record by reaching 85mph in a jet-powered flight suit. He calls it the "Iron Man" invention which has five gas turbine engines.
After the event, he said "Having Brighton Pier there, flying by an iconic landlamrk was really special." It requires just small movements of the arms and hours of practice to master. Glen Glenday, editor-in-chief of
Guiness World Records was in attendance to witness and officially note the record. Currently the suits are on sale at Selfridges for £340,000.
