The 3rd Annual Travis Mills Foundation Plane Pull Is On! Saturday, October 22, 2022

Our 2019 and 2021 Plane Pull events, powered by Northeast Air, exceeded our wildest expectations, raising over $250,000 to support the Travis Mills Foundation, Veteran’s Family Retreat in Belgrade Lakes, Maine. Join us again this October to cheer on over 25 pulling teams who have returned to defend their titles. We are super excited to have the honor to continue to host this event, that is open and free to the public.

Once again, Fed Ex will be lending us their 80-ton, Boeing-757 for the event. Teams of 25 individuals will test their strength to see how quickly they can pull the aircraft across the finish line, with a pledge to fundraise a minimum of $2,500 per team. 

We are grateful for our NEA employees and the many community volunteers that support the production of the event, including our partners at the Portland International Jetport, Fed Ex, Maine Civil Air Patrol, and the many volunteers at the Travis Mills Foundation who donate their time help us with the logistics.
