Annual Charity Plane Pull

Annual Charity Plane Pull


Today is a sunny day out here at Richmond RAAF base, where we’re doing a little bit of heavy lifting on behalf of a very worthwhile charity, I’m Detective Superintendent Scott White from the terrorism squad, I’m also the president of Law Enforcement Torch Run New South Wales, today we’re hosting the Law Enforcement Torch Run Plane
Pull, it’s the third annual event and there are twenty teams here, pitting themselves against the 45-tonne Hercules The challenge here is to get twenty
people on the rope, pull as hard as they can, it’s got to be a continual
pull, it’s quite different to a standard tug of war, the Herc doesn’t pull back, it’s just huge 45-tonne moveable mass Law Enforcement Torch Run, which is a policing
charity, it’s been going here in New South Wales for the last six years, is running the plane pull today The winner out of today though, is that the athletes of special olympics,
special olympics is an organization that’s very much into helping those people with
an intellectual disability They’ve been doing that now for the past forty
years and Law Enforcement Torch Run as a worldwide effort, has been doing it for thirty, so we’re here, we’ve got twenty teams including
about fourteen police teams, Botany Bay, Blacktown, Forensic Services, ALEC, not to mention of course PORS, who at this stage would have to be shaping as the favourites
-Okay, let’s see, this is it, we have our winner Ladies and gentlemen the public order riot squad has pulled in a time 1242 congratulations to the public order riot squad for the third year in the row The plane pull champions and congratulations are going to all the other
finalists today and to all the teams that competed
