State troopers compete in plane pull for charity

A team of Indiana State Troopers participated in a plane pull at Indianapolis Weir Cook International Airport for charity on Saturday.

Over 90 teams with a maximum of 20 participants per team participated in the competition to raise money for Special Olympics Indiana.

There were six different divisions including a Public Safety Division consisting of 26 teams of police, fire, and EMS personnel.

Each team was timed as it attempted to pull a Fed Ex Airbus 757 weighing approximately 164,000 pounds, 12 feet.

The Indiana State Police Team named Integrity, won the Public Safety Division by pulling the plane the 12 foot distance in 5.63 seconds.

The event raised over $180,000 for Special Olympics Indiana.
