How many people does it take to pull at jetliner? Turns out the answer is only about 15.
On Saturday, eight different teams put their backs into it, hauling all 31 tons of an Air North 737-500 a few dozen metres down a runway for charity.
The plane pull was a fundraiser for the United Way, one of many that have been done at airports across the country, but a first for Air North.
A few hundred people turned out for the pull, putting their muscles to the test. In true Whitehorse fashion, costumes proliferated.
Funds raised will be put towards a number of projects that the United Way supports across the territory.
