NEWARK — A cold rainy morning didn’t stop United Airlines at Newark Liberty International Airport as more than 150 employees participated in a Plane Pull Tournament, on Thursday, October 12.

This friendly competition, in which teams hold onto a rope and pull an aircraft 10 feet down the tarmac as quickly as possible, brought together coworkers from each of the company’s operational divisions.

The winning team was comprised of employees who work on the ramp and pulled a Boeing 737-800 in just 6.42 seconds the required distance.
