A kickboxing champion has completed a marathon while pulling a 1.25-tonne aeroplane to raise cash for children with an incurable illness.
Carl Thomas, 35, from Stockport, started dragging the Cessna up and down the airfield at Elvington, near York, on Wednesday evening, reaching a top speed of around 2mph.
He is trying to raise £250,000 for Ollie’s Army, a charity that supports a family who have two children with Batten’s disease.
Mike Carroll, whose children Ollie and Amelia have the condition, said it was unbelievable to watch Mr Thomas complete the marathon on Thursday.
The father-of-five told the PA news agency that it had been quite emotional to see Thomas push himself to the absolute limit for children with the disease.
