Midway 'Plane Pull' raises money for charity

Several teams took turns Saturday in a 'tug-of-war' contest of sorts that required some extra muscle. They were competing against a Southwest Airlines plane at Midway airport.The groups were trying to pull a 83,000-lb. 737 airplane 50 feet. However, it wasn't just a show of strength; it was a good deed, as well.

The Plane Pull Tournament raises money for the Ronald McDonald House charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana.
