CHICAGO -- On a windy morning at O'Hare, teams from all over came to compete.

Saturday marked the 7th annual Plane Pull: Up to 20 people pulling a plane --a big plane -- all on their own, including the team from the Niles police department.

Ninety-one teams came this year, raising nearly $200,000 dollars, with the money going to help those competing for Special Olympics Illinois.

The key was teamwork.  Coordinating all those hands, and all those feet to move just right, to get an Airbus A300 or Boeing 737, weighing 90 tons to move 12 feet in the shortest amount of time.
