Illinois Plane Pull

What is the Plane Pull?

The Plane Pull is the ultimate tug-of-war competition as teams compete to  pull an aircraft 12 feet as quickly as possible.  Awards are given to the fastest pull in each division, fastest pull overall and top fundraising team.

In 2017, Special Olympics Illinois and the Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run will partner to host Plane Pull events at two locations. The 2017 O’Hare Plane Pull will take place on Saturday, September 16 at the United Airlines Cargo facility in Chicago. Our Southern Illinois Plane Pull is scheduled for Saturday, October 7 at the Southern Illinois Airport in Murphysboro.
