Check Out Video Of The Travis Mills Plane Pull
According to WGME, Saturday's Travis Mills Plane Pull raised more than $100,000 for the Travis Mills Foundation.
It all took place at the Portland Jet Port. Teams of 25 people set out to pull, using brute strength, an 80 ton Boeing 757 twelve feet. The team to complete the fete the fastest, won.
In addition to raising over $100,000 for the foundation, the event was meant to raise awareness for Veterans causes in general. At least one of the fundraiser's organizers hopes it will become an annual event.
