People gathered Saturday at the Statesville Regional Airport for the 2019 Plane Pull and Fly-In, a fundraiser for the Special Olympics Lake Norman and Special Olympics Iredell County. 

Teams had to raise at least $500 in order to challenge each other by pulling a 30,000 pound Embraer ERJ-145 jet. Fourteen different teams participated, and the winning team was chosen by the fastest average out of two attempts. 

Over $13,000 was raised by Saturday morning for Special Olympics programming in Iredell County and the Lake Norman area.
