Stunt pilot sets Guinness World Record for longest flight through tunnel
Italian air-race competitor and stunt pilot Dario Costa made it to the Guinness Book of World Records by flying an aeroplane through two tunnels in Istanbul, Turkey.
Mr Costa’s world record is for the longest aeroplane flight taken through a tunnel for a distance of 1,730m. The video of this flight was released by Austrian company Red Bull on Facebook on September 4, 2021.
Mr Costa’s flight is seen taking off inside one of the Çatalca Tunnels outside Istanbul. As the flight propels forward, it is airborne before exiting the first tunnel.
Soon after coming out of the second tunnel, a camera inside the aircraft showed him screaming and weeping in joy.
