Thursday noon saw crowds gather around the Brayford Pool to witness the surreal spectacle of Gravity Industries‘ Richard Browning fly over in a jet-powered suit as part of the ‘Evolve’ event.

The event on 11 April, set-up and paid for by solicitor’s Wilkin Chapman, the largest law firm in Lincolnshire’s, to celebrate the £240,000 expansion of their Lincoln premises.

Other activities included golfing sessions with Forest Pines Golf Resort, cocktail tasters at the Doubletree by Hilton and demonstrations by Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue and Lincoln Sea Cadets, among others.

But it was Richard Browning and his Guinness World Record holding, 1,000 brake horsepower, jet-powered suit hovering over the Brayford Pool at speeds of around 30mph, which truly wowed the crowds.
