Two planes proved better than one at this year’s Dulles Plane Pull® & Family Festival, which boasted a record number ofpull teams and $290,000 and counting raised for Special Olympics Virginia!
This year, teams had the chance to pull one of two planes – a FedEx 757, weighing in a 150,000 pounds, or a United Airbus A320, weighing in at 100,000 pounds. Others took to the runway early in the day for our 5K and 10K, while our youngest pullers had the chance to test their strength against a big, red 123Junk truck.
From teams of “Just Plane Mamas” - our most enthusiastic team! - to star students – way to go to Briar Woods Lacrosse! – to our fastest pull winners, Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office, who pulled the 757 12 feet in just 4.7 seconds, everyone proved we are stronger when we play – and pull – unified.
Thanks to all the pullers, runners, volunteers, sponsors, fans and festivalgoers who made this year’s event possible.
