Gone in Sixty Seconds: This Tow Truck Must Have the Speed Record

Hit the jump for video from the Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen International Airport of a security tow truck removing a parked car IN LESS THAN A MINUTE by forklifting the car onto the truck’s tow bed. Not only is it much faster than the traditional way, but possibly safer for the car as well.  Ingenious.  How come we don’t do that everywhere?  The tow truck may have been an element of heightened airport security, as the video was apparently shot in August 2015, just two months after three suicide bombers attacked Istanbul’s Ataturk airport, killing 41 people and injuring 239.  The YouTube user who posted the video (link below) said the truck drove by every five minutes.
