On 4 September 2010, 99 Squadron, Royal Air Force Brize Norton, in conjunction with the Birmingham Airport Police Unit, will be hosting a charitable aircraft pulling competition at RAF Brize Norton. Teams from the Army, RAF, Civilian Police and Emergency services will be taking turns pulling a C-130 Hercules transport aircraft against the clock to raise money for The Royal Air Force Association (RAFA) and The British Limbless Ex-Service Man’s Association (BLESMA). The teams consist of 20 members. Each member must raise a minimum of £50 towards the £1000 that is required to take part. The aim is to raise as much money as possible for injured servicemen.
