Mr Browning told Reuters: "It's a very special moment every time we suit up, it's about 45 kilos so you really know your'e about to go and do something.


"As the engine starts fuelling up it starts to build, you can sense the energy.

"And the moment the ground leaves your feet and you're actually in the air, it's a pleasure and a joy."


Mr Browning's feat came as scores of other records were smashed as part of Guinness World Record Day.
