It's man versus machine in an ultimate test of strength.Everyone from firefighters to bodybuilders signed up for a huge challenge Saturday at the Long Beach airport. Teams of 25 pulled a Fed Ex Airbus 310 12 feet down the tarmac.

Each team had to raise a minimum of $1,000 to enter. The best team gets bragging rights for a year, but the real winners are the athletes who participate in the Special Olympics.

All proceeds are going to the Special Olympics of Southern California.
