The 6th Annual Cleveland Plane Pull took place at the I-X Center on Saturday, July 11.  The Plane Pull is a signature fundraising event for Special Olympics that tests teams of up to 20 members to pull a United Airlines Boeing 737 aircraft twelve feet for time.

Supporting sponsors of the event include Atlantic Aviation, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, The I-X Center, and United Airlines.

There are four team divisions: Men's, Women's, Co-ed (must have at least eight women), and Public Safety (must have 10 members from the public safety sector). The fastest teams in each division are awarded trophies.

In addition to the main event, participants and spectators enjoyed food trucks, inflatables for the kids, a photo booth, and more family fun.
