Plane Pull

The 2019 Plane Pull presented by Credit Suisse took place on April 27 at the UPS Tarmac at RDU International Airport.

What’s a Plane Pull?

The Plane Pull® is also a unique team building activity for groups.  It requires participants to come together as a team to achieve a very daunting task — pull an airplane 25 feet! Five-person teams will compete to see who can pull a 30,000-pound plane the fastest!  Participants must be at least 14 years old to compete. Each five-person team must raise a minimum of $800 total by the event date.

Congratulations to the Foothills Regulators for being named the 2019 Plane Pull Champions!
