DULLES, Va. — The 24th annual Dulles Day and Plane Pull was a success for Special Olympics Virginia.

More than $325,000 was raised for the nonprofit during the event, which was held at Dulles International Airport on Saturday.

An estimated 15,000 people turned out to  for firetruck rides, a classic car show, helicopter rides, and the highlight of the day — the plane pull.

FedEx and United Airlines both donated planes for the effort, as nearly 100 teams put up $1,500 apiece for the chance to pull a 160,00 pound Airbus A-320 12 feet.

Chesapeake, Virginia’s sheriff’s office posted the fastest time for the 10th year in a row, edging out Prince William County Sheriff’s Office with a time of 4.87 seconds.

Special Olympics Virginia President Rick Jeffrey said the organization relied on the support.
