VIDEO: Man breaks world record by pulling Wizz Air Airbus A320 USING HIS TEETH!

It’s always fun to hear about world records that involve aircraft… the weirder the better!

Therefore, it’s hardly a surprise that Zsolt Sinka’s recent entry into the Guinness World Records caught our attention.

The muscle-man from Hungary actually managed to pull a 50-tonne Airbus A320 almost 40 metres using HIS TEETH!

That’s a pretty impressive claim to fame. Basically, Zsolt (otherwise known as ‘Popey’) attached some rope to the front wheel of a Wizz Air plane at Budapest’s Liszt Ferenc Airport and pulled using his teeth.

In total, the Air A320 was moved 39.2 metres along the airport tarmac in 52 seconds. Wizz Air were supportive too, with cabin crew dressed as cheer leaders.

The video has drawn some criticism on YouTube though. “Strange how they keep the jet engines running... Sure is "tough" to pull a plane that already has a little thrust behind it,” wrote Brenton Pahl, with many similar comments by other users.

The achievement is similar to that of Kevin Fast, the Canadian record holder for pulling the heaviest aircraft (not using his teeth). I’ve included a video of that below too. He set the world record in 2009 after he pulled a CC-177 Globemaster III, weighing 188.83 tonnes, 8.8 metres along a Canadian air base in Ontario, Canada.

  1. Wouldn't it been a little easier to just release the brakes and start Engine #1?
