On Saturday, Oct. 16, the WSU Tech Foundation and B-29 Doc are partnering to bring you Wichita’s first ever Pull a Plane event, a fundraiser featuring the ultimate tug-of-war competition — people against a plane. The challenge is to see which team of 25 people can pull Doc (a restored B-29 weighing in at almost 80,000 pounds) 25 feet by rope in the fastest amount of time.
Pull a Plane is a family friendly event that’s open to the public. Anyone is welcome to attend to witness the event firsthand while cheering on their friends and family. Public admission will be $10 per person or $25 for a family (up to six people). The admission fee grants access to the Pull a Plane event, as well as to the Doc Hangar.
Pull a Plane begins at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 16 at the B-29 Doc Hangar at 1788 S. Airport Road in Wichita.
Join us to see who will be the first to pull Doc to victory!
