You read that right, Dan and Phil pulled a plane.

Screen Shot 2015-10-06 at 7.37.28 PMWell, us and 18 other members of Windy City Curling.  All to benefit the Special Olympics of Illinois.

You may have seen us post about this great fundraiser at Chicago O’Hare Airport.  20 members (us included) from Windy City Curling took on a 90-ton UPS Airbus A300.  The goal was to pull the plane as quick as possible over an extreme distance.

That extreme distance was 12 feet.

Don’t laugh.  The hardest part of the challenge was the beginning and getting the plane to move.  For all you science nerds, remember inertia?  Once the plan began to roll, the challenge was much easier.

Windy City Curling took on challenges from Police Swat teams, weight lifters, and many other people a lot bigger than us.  Phil even stacked the team with a few of his friends to help our chances.  Some of the winning times were just over 6 seconds.

How did we do?  Check out the video for details.
