Here are a few from a charity event ... C&C welcome! We had mostly overcast weather throughout the day, but caught a break with the sun peeking out every now and then.

I have to ask: How fast did they have to pull the rope to get the plane to be airborne?  

I'd love to hear the back story.

Hmmm... could they have flown it like a kite?!  Maybe...but the pilot kept hitting the brakes after the plane moved a few feet.

The plane-tug was part of a fundraiser for the North Carolina Special Olympics (link). The organizers were nice enough to let me on the tarmac to take a few shots. It just wasn't possible to capture the drama from behind the ropes. This is how it looked from the crowd:
