Bremont Watch Wingman Gary Connery Sets World Record
Thursday - 24 May 2012
Connery successfully completed his world record attempt wearing a special 'wing suit' that slowed his descent, allowing a safe landing on a runway of 18,000 cardboard boxes. Thousands of people watched the stunt, performed in a field just outside Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire.
"I don't think even Gary knows the full impact of what he has just achieved. He has just managed to do something that will literally change forever a large tranche of aviation," said Giles English. "This is totally pioneering. Bremont are so delighted to be involved with backing this extraordinary Henley-based man," he said.
