POLICE are challenging Defence
members to a race on September 24.
The track is only 10 metres, but
there's a handicap -- a 47-tonne C-130
Hercules transport aircraft, which
teams of 20 people must pull by rope.
It's all part of the 2011 Law
Enforcement Torch Run (LETR)
Plane Pull, which will raise money for
intellectually disabled athletes with
the Special Olympics.
Last year, RAAF Base Richmond
supported law enforcement and emer-
gency services teams from around
NSW at an inaugural event. NSW
Police Public Order and Riot Squad
took the grand trophy when it hauled
a Herc in 13.99 seconds.
The 2010 Plane Pull came about
following an approach to Defence
from Detective Superintendent Scott
Whyte, of NSW Police.
In the past 12 months, Air Force
Hercules have been used to fly Defence,
police and emergency services person-
nel alike around the world.
Detective Superintendent Whyte
encouraged Defence teams to face
the challenge from law enforcement
counterparts and participate in the
"Last year's event was great fun
for all those involved, giving people
the rare opportunity to pull a Hercules
by rope and help raise $20,000 for
the Special Olympics," Detective
Superintendent Whyte said.
"We had more than 500 people
support or participate in the Plane Pull
at Richmond in 2010, and we want to
make this year even bigger.
"A team from Richmond's 37SQN
has already registered for 2011, and
we welcome other Defence teams
who want to participate."
Defence teams within the work-
place are encouraged to mobilise
themselves to register through LETR.
Each team must have 20 people.
Registration costs $1000 a team,
and members are free to seek sponsor-
ship however they wish.
More information for teams who wish
to register, including video of last year's
event, can be found at http://ra.af/
