Photos from Jet Suit Demonstration at Air Festival

We were totally blown away by the amazing Jet Suit demonstration at the Bournmemouth Air Festival on Friday 31st August 2018.

Gravity Industries came along with not one but two of their 1000bhp Gravity Jet Suits. The display started from Bournemouth pier with both pilots flying along the seafront past the thousands of onlookers. One continued on to Boscombe Pier and another landed on a platform between the piers. We were positioned next to the landing plaform and got to see, feel and hear the power of the jet powered suits.

The kit is five miniature jet engines mounted on the pilot’s arms and back, plus electronics and 3D-printed parts. The suit by Gravity Industries is reminiscent of the one worn by Robert Downey Jr. as Marvel superhero Iron Man.

Below is a small selection of images of the spectacle in Bournemouth, all part of this weekends Air Festival.
