CHESAPEAKE, Va. - The Chesapeake Sheriff's Office won first place at the Dulles Plane Pull, bringing home not just a trophy but money for a good cause.
Teams from all across Virginia came to Dulles International Airport to see which could pull an 82-ton FedEx airbus 12 feet in the fastest time. The CSO won the trophy with a time of 5.9 seconds.
The plane pull is an annual fundraiser for Special Olympics Virginia. According to a spokesperson with CSO, the team raised more than $9,000 for the cause.
"Supporting the cause is more important than winning the competition," Sheriff Jim O'Sullivan said in a statement.
This marks the CSO's 13th consecutive win at the plane pull.
