Extreme sportsmen Jamshid Ismatillaev and Yegor Sorokaletov together moved the An-26 plane at the Simferopol airport. The action was timed to coincide with the anniversary of the founding of the Crimean air harbor and the Day of the State Flag.
The athletes towed the 22-ton machine with a rope from a seated position. They managed to overcome 9 meters in 41.5 seconds. According to the organizer of the event ANO “The Strongest Nation in the World”, this method is the most difficult for moving large-sized equipment.
For Jamshid Ismatillaev, the achievement was the second this year. In March, he set a Russian record by moving the Be-12 amphibious aircraft weighing more than 31 tons by 1 meter 12 cm in 40 seconds.
