These strongmen pulled the world’s largest cargo plane
LOCATION: Hostomel, Ukraine
Eight athletes managed to move the Antonov AN-225 plane, known as Mriya
for 14 feet within one minute 13 seconds
(SOUNDBITE) (Ukrainian) STRONGMAN ATHLETE, OLEKSANDR LASHYN, SAYING:
"It is a unique occasion because it is the largest and the heaviest airplane in the world - Mriya. It is an airplane made in Ukraine. And we, Ukrainian strongman athletes, managed to pull it and make it move for over four meters. I believe this record is worth being in the Guinness record book."
Mriya was built in the Soviet Union in 1988
to transport Soviet Buran space shuttles or other heavy cargos
