The pioneer, who set the 2017 Guinness World Record for “Fastest speed in a body controlled jet engine powered suit,” was attempting speeds of 62 miles per hour on his way up – a speed normally accomplished on the way down.

“Sliding down a zip wire that’s a mile long is pretty exhilarating – flying back up it when you have 1,000 horsepower at your finger tips is another level!” Browning said.
