What is Pull a Plane?
B-29 Doc and WSU Tech Foundation are partnering to bring you Wichita’s third annual Pull a Plane event in 2023, a fundraiser featuring the ultimate tug-of-war competition — men and women against plane!
The challenge is to see whose team of 25 people can 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 – with the ultimate prize being a ride in Doc for the person who raises the most donations for education!
Pull a Plane 2023 will be held on Saturday, October 7 at the B-29 Doc Hangar, Education & Visitors Center. The event is family friendly and 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 where a variety of STEM activities will be taking place, and the after party celebration.
