Most uncomfortable flight ever?

Strongmen Eddie Hall and Brian Shaw were seated next to each other on a flight to Scotland, and a hilarious photo showed the two hulking men looking jokingly upset as they invaded each other’s personal space.

The pals appeared to be sitting in the economy class section of the small plane, making for a tight squeeze in the tiny chairs.

Hall, 31, posted the photo on Instagram, writing, “The check-in ladies sat me and @shawstrength right next to each other on the plane from London to Scotland and no-one on the plane would swap seats… Would you swap seats with one of us???… I wouldn’t either.”

Shaw, 37, and Hall have both won the World’s Strongest Man competition. Hall took home the trophy in 2017 and Shaw did in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016.

According to the World’s Strongest Man website, Hall measures in at 6 feet, 3 inches and weighs 410 lbs. Shaw, meanwhile, weighs 419 lbs and is 6 feet, 8 inches tall.

Though the contestants for the 2019 World’s Strongest Man have yet to be announced, Hall and Shaw are both regulars in the competition.

The men are certainly no stranger to uncomfortable plane rides.

In February, Hall shared a photo of himself in a tiny plane chair, admitting, “Trying to fly in style sometimes just ain’t possible.”
