Team CCS New England – Plane Pull for Wounded Warriors
On August 13th, CCS New England participated in a charity event to benefit Wounded Warriors. Wounded Warriors are U.S. troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan that have suffered injuries consisting mostly of brain trauma from explosions.
Team CCS pulled a jet weighing over 98,000 lbs. 20 feet in 10.47 seconds. Their time was almost 3 seconds faster than the previous year’s winner. They think this was due to their ringer, Elly, their 71 year old office admin anchoring the team!
CCS New England competed against 15 other teams consisting of 20 participants per team. Although they didn’t win the event, a great time was had by all. After the plane pull, participants stayed for an air show featuring the Air Force Thunderbirds and several other precision air teams.
