READING, England (CBSMiami/CNN) — Move over Tony Stark, there’s a new Iron Man in town and he just set a world record.

Pilot Richard Browning of England invented a jet suit called “Daedalus”, which features six gas turbines with a combined thrust of 286 pounds. Browning used the suit to soar into the Guinness World Record books by reaching a speed of 32.02 mph while wearing the gear.

It wasn’t all smooth sailing though.

One of Browning’s attempts saw him end up in a lake.

Nevertheless, he now holds the title for the fastest speed achieved in a body-controlled jet engine power suit.
