VIDEO: Troops Pull Together to Move Hercules Aircraft

Canadian troops put their muscles to good use on Friday in the annual “Herc Pull” at 17 Wing Winnipeg.

Military personnel pulled an 82,000-pound Hercules CC-130 aircraft to see who could move it 50 feet the fastest. The event was a qualifier for the upcoming plane pull on September 21 in support of the United Way.

The winning team, 435 Maintenance Squadron, will represent 17 Wing at the Red River College Stevenson Campus next Friday. The team clocked a time of 13.75 seconds. video
