strength” that helped them

With friends and family
cheering from the sidelines,
the Bradken team came
away the victors crossing
the finish line with 737 in tow
in a time of 44.22 seconds.
Proceeds from the event,
around $800, were donated
to Bradken’s nominated charity
the Stollery Children’s Hospital.
A group of 20 staff and
employees participated in
the ‘Airline Pull’ competing
against 20 members of the
Edmonton Garrison to pull
a 30 000 kilogram airplane
across 300 feet of tarmac.
The idea to take part in the
event came from a Fabrication
Shop employee who identified
it as a great team building
exercise and a chance to
show some team strength.
Executive Vice President
of Bradken Edmonton
and member of the winning
team, Len Wattamaniuk, said
that despite the tough
Teamwork and community spirit were
winning strategies when employees from
Bradken Edmonton took on a Boeing 737
as part of a charity event held in July at
the alberta aviation Museum.
