Event Information

B-29 Doc and WSU Tech Foundation are partnering to bring you Wichita’s second annual Pull a Plane event in 2022, 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!

The date for the 2022 Pull a Plane event will be announced soon.

How do teams work?

Each team of 25 people raises a minimum of $2,500 to help benefit education, then they will compete to pull the restored Superfortress 25 feet as fast as they can! Join us to test your strength – and quickness – against competitors.

So grab your barbells and recruit your friends and co-workers. There is only one Doc and he calls our great city of Wichita ‘home’. Let’s get pullin’ for a great cause to benefit education in our community!

Who benefits?

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

When and where?

The date for the 2022 Pull a Plane event will be announced soon.
