Pull that plane! Crewmembers Support Special Olympics

We recently sponsored the 20th Annual Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) Dulles Day Festival and Plane Pull to support Special Olympics Virginia. Twenty-five crewmembers from IAD, BWI, and DCA pooled their muscle strength as they pulled a 150,000 pound FedEx Airbus aircraft 12 feet—in nine seconds!

Friends and family came out to support the team and enjoy the day, which included a car show, aircraft displays, a children’s truck pull, and an explosive K-9 demonstration by the MWAA. Since the event’s first year in 1992, more than $1 million for Special Olympics, and we were proud to once again support the cause on the event’s 20th anniversary and offer round-trip tickets for its raffle.
