British Airways is offering five members of the public from around the world a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to race the A380 super jumbo in the airline’s #ManVsPlane Challenge Accepted! contest.
Following last year’s smash hit viral video #ManVsPlane (approaching 2 Million YouTube views) which saw South African Rugby legend Bryan Habana race British Airways’ new A380 on the runway and win, the airline is giving members of the public the opportunity to follow in Habana’s footsteps, by racing the super jumbo themselves.
“In 2013, I raced British Airways new A380 aircraft and won. Now, it’s your turn to accept the challenge. Participants need to be physically fit and have the strength, stamina and speed to beat the plane to the finish line,” says Bryan Habana of South Africa Springboks and Toulon.
To be in with a chance of winning a place in the race, visit www.ba.com/ManVsPlane until Monday January 20, 2014, and fulfil the entry requirements. Five winners will be selected to fly to South Africa next month with British Airways and race the A380 on the runway.
The runner with the quickest time on the day will win two return tickets in Club World on one of British Airways’ A380 direct flights to London, Los Angeles, Hong Kong or Johannesburg, enjoying the sweet taste of success.
Habana has amassed 95 caps and has scored 53 test tries along the way, establishing himself as the Springboks all-time leading try scorer and one of the most prolific finishers in the world game.
