What is the Plane Pull?
The Plane Pull features the ultimate tug-of-war competition, as teams of up to 10 battle a United Airlines 737, weighing more than 60,000 lbs. That is right, the plane weights nearly 3 tons! Each participant must raise a minimum of $50 ($500 for a team of 10).
Teams compete in one of three divisions:
- Open Division: Ideal for companies, school teams, clubs, friends and Families
- Public Safety Division: law enforcement, fire fighters, paramedics, EMT, DNR, DOC and military personnel; teams need at least 10 public safety competitors to qualify for this division
- SIU Division (a division created solely for students and staff of Southern Illinois University)
