Pulled a plane lately?

The annual Dulles Day Family Festival and Plane Pull is scheduled for Sept. 25 this year.

Teams of about 25 people each will attempt to pull a jetliner to raise money for Special Olympics Virginia.

Last year about 58 teams competed, and one woman, Mary Jacobson of Stanley, Va., attempted to pull a cargo plane across the tarmac at Dulles International Airport all by herself. (Read last year's plane pull story here).

In addition to the plane pull, the day will include a kids' school bus pull, live music, a car show and aircraft on display, including military, civilian and vintage planes.

Admission and parking are free for the event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
