British inventor shows off his jet suit at Royal Navy base

British inventor and former Royal Marine reservist Richard Browning has treated Royal Navy air crews to a demonstration of his jet suit.

The footage shows Browning, founder and chief pilot of Gravity Industries, flying about at Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton.

In a 2017 interview, Browning told the Evening Standard: "The feeling is really special ... as you fire up all the engines and move your arms down and the thrust lines up vertically you can just feel the weight come off your feet and then you're in free space."
