Here you can see we’ve purchased a radio controlled winch from Harbor Freight. It’s a 3 ton unit that we hook to the tow bar. The cable is just long enough to grab the nose wheel with the tow bar attached. Once connected, it makes short (OK, not long) work of pulling the plane in so Beth can put it away by her self. We put a couple of center marks on the taxiway to help her line up.
