Zsolt Sinka showed he had plenty of bite as he set a new Guinness World Record for pulling the heaviest aircraft using only his teeth.

The Hungarian strongman pulled a 50-ton Airbus A320 almost 40 metres using just his teeth and a rope attached to the front wheel of the plane.

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.  

Sinka performed the impressive stunt at Liszt Ferenc Airport in Budapest with an audience of applauding airport staff and Wizz Air cabin crew staff dressed as cheerleaders providing him support from the sidelines.

Sinka has done similar stunts in the past, and has used his gnashers to pull other heavy transport vehicles, including fire engines and trains.

The world record for 'heaviest road vehicle pulled by teeth' is held by Georges Christen from Luxembourg. Christen set the record in 2009 in Beijing, after he pulled a bus carrying people and weighing nine tonnes.

The current world record holder for the heaviest aircraft pulled by man (NOT using his teeth) is held by Canadian, Kevin Fast.

The 9 world record holder for various heavy pulling set the world record in 2009 after he pulled a CC-177 Globemaster III, weighing 188.83 tonnes, 8.8 metres along a Canadian air base in Ontario, Canada.
