Employees from the Pratt & Whitney North Berwick Parts Center recently participated in the Multiple Sclerosis Plane Pull to benefit the Maine Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The event was held June 29 at the Portland Jetport in Portland, Maine.

Each team consisted of 25 participants that cumulatively have donated a minimum of $1,000. Each team competes to pull a 72-ton Boeing 757 aircraft 12 feet. The fastest time wins the event.

The North Berwick Parts Center team took second place with a pull time of 5.2 seconds. The Pratt & Whitney team, which raised $1,000, is the only team to participate in all nine of the annual plane pull events.
