NEWBURGH -

There was a show of strength of a different kind at Stewart International Airport this weekend.

Nine teams of 20 people competed for the fastest time of pulling  a 757 FedEx plane.

The plane pull was to raise money for various charities supported by the United Way of Dutchess-Orange Region.

And those strong volunteers did just that, helping to raise more than $45,000 for the community.
