The 2018 Plane Pull presented by Credit Suisse took place on April 28 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 2018 Plane Pull Champions! Photos are now available.
