This is the incredible moment the Royal Navy’s ‘Iron Man’ troops used jetpacks to fly over HMS Queen Elizabeth.
Amazing footage shows the soldiers soaring over New York Harbor before landing on the Navy’s flagship aircraft carrier.
The military fly across the Atlantic waving the Union Jack flag in front of stunned onlookers.
The flights were part of the Atlantic Future Forum (AFF), an Anglo-American military conference on military, political and strategic relations.
The flights are made possible thanks to Gravity Industries’ innovative super-fast, gravity-defying jet suits.
The suits, which use more horsepower than a Formula 1 racing car, allow people to become a “real IronMan”.
The suits can reach speeds of up to 85 miles per hour and altitudes of 12,000 feet.
They are made by British ex-naval inventor Richard Browning, billed as the real Iron Man.
The former Royal Marines reservist said: “The team and I are delivering on the vision to grow Gravity into a world-class aeronautics company, to challenge perceived limitations in human aviation and to inspire a generation to dare ‘what if’ to ask.”
HMS Queen Elizabeth hosted the two-day event which aims to “advance defence, security, trade and economic partnership between these countries and examine how we foster innovation, economic growth and resilience”.
Officials said they seek to “strengthen the trade and economic pillars of the Euro-Atlantic alliance and strengthen our security and defense partnerships with like-minded, democratic allies.”
HMS Queen Elizabeth sailed from Portsmouth on September 7 bound for the United States.
It replaced its sister ship HMS Prince of Wales, which broke down just hours after leaving near the Isle of Wight.
The 65,000-ton warship arrived in New York on September 28.
