VIDEO: The ultimate race... Aero L-29 Delfín airplane versus Maserati super car!

FL Technics raced a Maserati car against an Aero L-29 Delfin planeIt must be tough for aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) companies to increase their brand awareness online with a viral campaign. The topic area – while very important – doesn’t necessarily appeal to a mass audience.

However, there are always exceptions to that rule. Take the latest video from Lithuania’s FL Technics for example, which was uploaded onto YouTube earlier this week.

You can watch the video below, which shows FL Technics CEO Jonas Butautis having a race with Maxim Belov, who is the vice president of sales for Avia Solutions Group in Russia.

This isn’t a normal race though. Jonas Butautis is driving a sexy-looking Maserati Mc Stradale, while his opponent Maxim Belov is piloting a very cool Aero L-29 aircraft. A clever move, which captures the attention of aviation geeks as well as car enthusiasts… and even people that aren’t too passionate about either!

  1. Sadly the car wins... at least for the first 1,500 feet!

  2. That plane goes over 400 km/h in the this race was not fair :)

    It was probably a tie.

    That's not a race! Race like 100 miles and see who gets there first!

  5. Why the hell people love to race cars against planes. First off its always unfair. Because once the plane is on the ground it's at a disadvantage as that's NOT its habitat. And once it's airborne NO car can beat it so the car will always loose.
