New Guinness Record!
Officially, the weight of the aircraft that was used during the record-breaking has not yet been released, but it is known that the empty Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner weighs about 128.82 tons. According to the Guinness World Records website, the previous record was definitely less impressive (84 disabled people in wheelchairs pulled Hercules C-130 aircraft for over 100 meters, which weight is about 67 tons). It is worth noting that much more can be done, Boeing 787-9 belonging to the fleet of British airlines British Airways is not the heaviest aircraft in the world, for the next daredevils dreaming of breaking the record still waiting Antonov An-225 Mriya (which at the moment is officially the heaviest machine worldwide, weighs over 284 tonnes).
We are impressed by the British performance and we are looking forward to the duel with Antonov!
