Dubai Police have broken the Guinness World Record of pulling an A380 Emirates aircraft for 100 meters as part of the 30-days Fitness Challenge.

The team consisted of 56 police officers who pulled the 302.68 tonnes aircraft to break the former record which was 218.56 tonnes for a Boeing 747 aircraft pulled in Hong Kong International Airport by 100 people in 2011.

A delegation from the Guinness World Records handed Guinness certificate to Major-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Merri, commander-in-chief of Dubai Police in present of other officials.

Major General Al Merri, praised the support by Shaikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, president of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, CEO and chairman of the Emirates Group. Al Merri thanked Dubai Airports and Emirates teams of supporting to break the world record.

“It is a new achievement for Dubai police to enter the Guinness World Record. We always keen to support the social gestures by Dubai government,” Maj-Gen Al Merri said.

 

Earlier, Dubai police accepted the challenge by Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of the Dubai Government and Dubai Sports Council. Shaikh Hamdan challenged Dubai Police to sign up for the '30 minute x 30 days' Dubai Fitness Challenge.
