The Guinness world record for the Heaviest train pulled by teeth was set by Velu Rathakrishnan (Malaysia), who used his teeth to pull two KTM commuter trains, with a total of weight of 260.8 tonnes (574,964 lb), a distance of 4.2 m (13 ft 9 in) along rails at Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, Malaysia.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the heaviest road vehicle pulled with teeth; it was a bus weighing 9,064.06 kg (19,982.83 lbs) and was achieved by Georges Christen (Luxembourg).
Zsolt Sinka set a new world record for the country when he successfully yanked the Airbus A320 39.2 metres in 52 seconds at Liszt Ferenc Airport in Budapest.
In a video the stuntman is seen placing a yellow rope in his mouth that is attached to the plane. He then begins to pull the vehicle using just his mouth, while female cheerleaders encourage him from the sidelines.
Even more remarkably Sinka, nicknamed 'Popey' took just 52 seconds to pull the aircraft 39.2 metres along the airport tarmac, in what appears like an effortless act of human strength.
After the impressive feat, Sinka was handed a model Wizz Air plane, which he proceeded to bite down on with his teeth.
The Wizz Air low budget airline is reportedly preparing to list itself on the London stock market.
Regardind the video posted below, please note that "the engines are not running, instead what you can hear is the APU (Auxiliary Power Unit). It provides power for the plane, while the engines are not running. You need power to operate the wheel brakes, to stop the plane."
