What Is It?

Doc’s Friends and WSU Tech are partnering to bring you Wichita’s inaugural Pull a Plane event, 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. That’s right, teams will race the clock to pull Doc’s nearly 40 tons by rope 25 feet – with the ultimate prize being a ride in Doc for the person who raises the most donations for education!

Who Benefits?

Net proceeds collected from Pull a Plane will be split between WSU Tech Foundation to finance student scholarships and Doc’s Friends to help pay off Doc’s new home and hangar education displays.
