Wait, what? You read that correctly. People will gather at MSP airport this weekend to pull a 60,000 pound Delta jet across the tarmac. Talk about a stellar workout! It's the 6th Annual Plane Pull, and it all benefits Special Olympics Minnesota.

According to the Special Olympics, over 40 teams of up to 8 people will compete in the Plane Pull in hopes of receiving the fastest time of pulling the plane 25 feet across the tarmac. "The winning team walks away with a trophy and ultimate bragging rights."
