Superman filmed soaring over California coast

A video of the famous 'Man of Steel' swooping over the Californian coastline has recently gone viral.

The bizarre sight was filmed courtesy of student Kyle Gough who had been out for a bike ride when he came across a remote-controlled aircraft enthusiast piloting a life-size replica of Superman through the skies over Carlsbad, southern California. Having persuaded the man to launch his unique flying machine for another spin, Kyle succeeded in filming the flight on camera.

The resulting footage became a huge hit when posted on-line, generating more than 300,000 views. "The only reason I did the video was to show my dad," said Kyle. "He’s a big Superman fan."

"A popular online video captures a lifesized remote control Superman soaring through the sky over the Californian coast."
