The Nissan Patrol SUV set a new towing record back in August 2013 when it successfully pulled a 170 ton Russian built Ilyushin IL-76 cargo plane at Sharjah Airport in the UAE. The previous record was held by the Volkswagen Touareg which towed a 155 ton cargo plane. The action starts at the 1 minute mark in the video and you can see the Nissan Patrol pulling the plane for over 30 metres. Watch the video below:
The event was sponsored by Nissan Middle East, Sharjah Aviation Authority and Rus Aviation.
