Special Olympics Plane Pull


Local 1001 members came out to participate in a great cause for the Special Olympics, the 2018 Plane Pull at Chicago’s O’Hare airport. Our team of  proud LiUNA members did a great job, as they always do.

The Plane Pull features the ultimate tug-of-war competition, as teams of up to 20 battle a UPS Airbus A300 or United Airlines 737, weighing more than 180,000 lbs.  That is right, the plane weights nearly 90 tons!

Thanks to everyone who came out to pull and to support our team, see you next year.
