That is unless you’re pulling an 83,000-pound Southwest Airlines 737 aircraft half the length of a regulation football field! Today, at Southwest Airlines in Dallas, Employees put their game faces on for the annual Southwest Airlines Pigskin Plane Pull to kick off the TX/OU weekend!
The event has taken place for 12-consecutive years as Southwest Employees, adorned in their favorite school’s colors participate in this festive, yet competitive, pep rally, alongside the cheer teams and mascots from each university.
This year, sixteen Employees pulled for either the Texas Longhorns or Oklahoma Sooners to see what Team could pull the fastest for a chance to win Red River Rivalry game tickets and, of course, bragging rights!
Special guests Junior Miller and The Great Donovan, The Musers from local Sportsradio 1310 The Ticket, along with two of their listeners, joined the fun by pulling with our Employees.
Congratulations to team Oklahoma for winning this year’s Pigskin Plane Pull, with an impressive time of 37 seconds!
We wish both Teams luck in this weekend’s big game!
