Doc’s Friends and WSU Tech Foundation are partnering to bring you Wichita’s first ever Pull a Plane event, 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 25 feet – with the ultimate prize being a ride in Doc for the person who raises the most donations for education!
Pull a Plane will take place from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 10, 2021, at the new B-29 Doc Hangar and Education Center at Eisenhower National Airport. A static display of other historic warbirds from the World War II era will add to the fun with an open house event running from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
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. Food will be available for purchase and entertainment will be provided for spectators throughout the event.
