Airplane Pull Benefits United Way


ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Hundreds of Stateline neighbors try to find out just how many people it takes to pull a cargo plane, and it was all for a good cause.

Several teams met Sunday at the Chicago Rockford International Airport to see if they could pull a 757 UPS cargo plan 30 feet across the tarmac. Members of the 23 News Team joined forces with the folks over at Anderson Japanese Gardens to try and drag the aircraft. The 1st Annual Plane Pull is expected to bring in more than $3,000 for the United Way of Rock River Valley.
