04/21/13 115 W, 2 I - + 3 - 2 Raleigh Fire Explorers Pull Plane For Charity

On Saturday morning at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, five members of Raleigh Fire Explorer Post 108 hit the tarmac to help raise money for the North Carolina Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics North Carolina. They competed with other teams to see who pull a 30,000-pound regional jet the fastest. The explorers raised $1,180 and pulled the plane in 14.83 seconds. Photographer Lee Wilson was present, and captured the team action. He also got some good posed shots of the airport's fire apparatus. Learn more about the event. See more photos from Lee. And remember kids, don't try to pull an airplane by yourself. It takes teamwork.
