It was a busy day at 8 Wing today.
CFB Trenton held a Community Fair day in support of the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign which benefited the United Way of Hastings and Prince Edward.
The big draw for crowds was the Herc pull where teams of 20 pulled a 110,000 lbs. Hercules aircraft.
Six teams participated in the event.
The aircraft weighs 75,000 lbs. empty and weighs in 15,000 lbs. more than last year.
Teams had to move the aircraft 25 meters.
Last year, 8Wing/CFB Trenton raised $126,000 for the United Way. An announcement is planned for later today.
