What Is It?

Doc’s Friends and WSU Tech are partnering to bring you Wichita’s third annual Pull a Plane event in 2023, featuring the ultimate tug-of-war competition – men and women against plane!

The challenge is to see whose team of 25 people can battle to pull Doc, a restored B-29 weighing in at nearly 80,000 pounds. Teams will race the clock to pull Doc’s nearly 40 tons by rope 25 feet – so get to work on building up those arm muscles and create or join a team now!


Who Benefits?

Net proceeds collected from Pull a Plane will be split between the WSU Tech Foundation to support student-focused initiatives and B-29 Doc to help finance Doc’s hangar displays and educate future generations.

How Do You Win?

Set your fundraising bar high! One lucky player that raises the most donations for education gets to ride in Doc. Flying in a B-29 that served in WWII is a rare experience. Will you earn the coveted seat as Doc’s passenger?
