Ex-Royal Marines Reservist Richard Browning has set off with a jet-powered flying suit from Britain's largest aircraft carrier during the ship's visit to a US port.

A video of the former reservist flying around HMS Queen Elizabeth was shared on a social media account of Gravity Industries, a British aeronautical innovation company founded by Mr Browning.

A video showing the moment the former Royal Marine Reservist took off from the ship was shared on the social media account of HMS Queen Elizabeth.

HMS Queen Elizabeth is currently off the east coast of the United States as part of the Westlant 19 Carrier Strike Group deployment.

Last week the former Royal Marine Reservist broke his own jet-suit speed-record, setting a new Guinness World Record.

Mr Browning hit 85.06mph at Brighton Pier, beating his previous personal best of 32mph.

Landing on a shingle beach in front of on-lookers, the new personal-best will appear in the record book as the new 'fastest speed in a body-controlled jet engine-powered suit'.
