Teams compete in 4th annual jet pull at HIA

How many people does it take to pull a 24,000 pound jet? Apparently eight.

Thursday was the fourth annual Dash-8 jet pull at Harrisburg International Airport.

Teams of eight people competed to see which team could pull a jet 15 feet the fastest. The jets were attached to a rope and the teams were able to use nothing but their strength.

The race was also a fundraiser for the United Way with the goal to raise $1,000.
