时速32英里! 英国'钢铁侠'发明飞行速率新记录


British inventor Richard Browning truly looks out of this world as he makes his mark in the pages of the Guinness Book of World Records.


Dubbed the "real-life Iron Man", he has broken the record for the fastest speed in a body-controlled jet engine power suit.


Wearing the 40,000 pounds suit which he designed himself, Browning reached 32.02 miles per hour and created a new record, which he himself hopes to "smash" in the future.


The suit takes off vertically and can be controlled by moving the arms, while a display screen inside the helmet gives updates on fuel consumption.


Browning said: "I am delighted we have set the record, and I have no doubt that this is just the beginning."


The Royal Marines reservist, from Wiltshire, said he has long been fascinated by the possibilities of human flight propulsion and worked on his flight suit for three years before debuting it in April.


He was inspired by his father, an aeronautical engineer who worked at helicopter manufacturer Westland but wanted to be an inventor.
