England's all-time top scorer had reportedly agreed terms on a £12.5 million move to DC United in Major League Soccer last week. Allardyce took over the reins on November 30 a year ago , six months after leaving a similarly short stint at Crystal Palace.

The Model X successfully towed the 130 ton Dreamliner, surpassing its rated road tow weight of 2.5 tons. A fully charged Model X can go up to 465 km on a single charge. The Tesla Model X P100D's electric motor generates an impressive 1,072Nm of torque.

As you can probably imagine, the airplane weighs much more than the Model X and exceeds its towing capacity by quite a margin. In an event in India, Tata Hexa pulled a 285-tonne Airbus A380 past year for 73 meters, which is highly impressive. Use of electric vehicles could help the airline to cut down their emission cost on the runway. It exceeds the tow rating of the Model X by about 48 times - not that that stopped the Tesla.
