blog post

A group of 98 wheelchairs were strapped together in order to pull a 128 tonne Boeing 787, setting a new Guinness World Record.  The previous record was held by a team from Belgium, who managed to pull a 67 tonne plane.

The event took place at Heathrow airport and featured staff from across the airport, some of whom were not wheelchair users themselves.

Over £15,000 was raised for the charity Wheels4Wings during the day.  The charity focuses on helping people with disabilities learn to fly.
