There are easier ways to move an airplane, you know.

How do those guys not pull their teeth out or chip them? If I tried something most of my front ones would just break off and come out.

Meh.  You can pull anything so long as the ground is level and theres little enough friction.

As you love me, Zsolt.

Airbus / Scarebus continues its ritual un-prosecuted pre-meditated killing dental damage of passengers attention whores world wide. From forcing tsunami incisor destroyed countries gums to buy Scarebus to get aid, to failing the A380 150% wing-loading flossing test, Scarebus builds on its reputation for falling out teeth of the sky upper jaw. FL35, cruise drill and it "breaks up". Nice. Good planes.

Video in the article is pretty sketchy; it shows him putting the rope in his mouth, skips an unknown amount of time and then shows the plane moving while he tows it.  No footage of when the plane starts to move.  Fake?

Probably not.  Its actually really easy to move a vehicle so long as the ground is perfectly level.  Also, it is extremely likely that his "rope" is actually a flexible material that stretches as he pulls, so it allows him to move a greater distance while moving the vehicle a shorter one, sort of like a pulley system.  It would greatly leverage his force.

If I was a budget airline exec a little dim bulb might be going off above my head, and I ain't talking about the no smoking sign.

Oh, and they probably modified the plane, for example temporarily removing the brake pads from contacting  the wheel to further decrease friction during the pull, since they would normally apply some nominal amount of pressure even when not actually in use.

But obviously and airbus weights much less than a regular bus, because it can fly!

I imagine the tires are over-inflated as well to cut down rolling resistance.

Haha flew on HA-LWS on wednesday. good for him

With their teeth? Meh, call me when they're pulling freight trains with their ballsacks.

He used his hands to start the airplane moving. You can watch it in this video (after a stoopid commercial) at about the 0:34 mark if you really want.

You know how I know how you've never seen an aircraft braking system before?

I once pulled a train using only my chile.

Vince Mcmahon should sign him to a contract. Mark Henry is going to retire (or not). Dude already has a promo cut.

Airbus with your teeth? Nope, fake. Takes about 5000lbs of drawforce.

50 tonnes? As Fark's resident strongman I could see it as long as his jaw strength could keep his mouth shut all you have to do is lean back and start taking baby steps. I've pulled 70-tonne truck-trailers with a harness and rope, and a 30-ton cement truck with just a rope.

upon checking my numbers an empty cement truck is only 15 tons so pulling three of them using my teeth would suck
