Pull A Plane

April 18, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Due to the continued impact of the COVID-19 public health situation, the Pull a Plane fundraiser scheduled for April 18 has been postponed. We are incredibly grateful for your support and are actively looking at the schedule to find a make-up date. That announcement will be shared with you as soon as information is available.

For now, our top priority is the safety and health of our participants, spectators, planning team, volunteers, and the general public.

All funds that have been raised to date, along with future fundraising efforts for the event, will be placed on hold.

We encourage you to use this time to hone your plane-pulling muscles, and stay well!

Doc’s Friends + The WSU Tech Foundation

Saturday April 18th – Pull A Plane!
Doc’s Friends and WSU Tech are partnering to bring you Wichita’s inaugural Pull a Plane event, featuring the ultimate tug-of-war competition – men and women against plane!

The challenge is to see whose team of 25 people can battle to pull Doc, a restored B-29 weighing in at nearly 80,000 pounds. That’s right, teams will race the clock to pull Doc’s nearly 40 tons by rope 25 feet – with the ultimate prize being a ride in Doc for the person who raises the most donations for education!

Hosted at the B-29 Doc Hangar, Education and Visitors Center at Eisenhower National Airport
Hosted by Doc’s Friends & WSU Tech Foundation 

JOIN THE FACEBOOK EVENT FOR UPDATES The Pull a Plane event is family friendly and is open to the public. In addition to the Pull a Plane event featuring B-29 Doc, historic warbirds from the World War II era will also be on static display, giving those who attend the event a chance to experience history, up close and personal.

Public admission will be $10 per person or $25 for a family (up to six people).
The admission fee grants access to the Pull a Plane event, as well as admission to the B-29 Doc Hangar, Education and Visitors Center where the other aircraft will be on display.
Each team of 25 people will raise a minimum of $2,500 in order to participate ($100 per person). Proceeds of the inaugural fundraiser will be shared between the WSU Tech Foundation (to finance student scholarships) and Doc’s Friends (to help broaden Doc’s operations and hangar education program)

The individual who raises the most donations for the event will be rewarded with a ride in B-29 Doc.
