Brits vs. Yanks at JFK Hangar 81 for A Good Cause

We’re hosting the fourth annual Airbus A320 plane pull at JFK Hangar 81 today. Some “Bobbies” from London’s Metropolitan Police Department will go head-to-head in time trials against JFK Crewmembers, British Airways crew, TSA employees, as well as New York’s Finest State Troopers and other local authorities.

Both sides of the pond are joining forces to raise money and awareness about a UK-based foundation called J-A-C-K (Joining Against Cancer in Kids). The charity is dedicated to raising funds for research on neuroblastoma, a rare childhood brain cancer. The Brits are hoping for their first win; for the past three years, the Yanks have won by pulling the A320 aircraft 100 feet with the fastest time!
