I think this is one of those “it's the thought that counts” moments.
Definitely the thought. And she definitely didn’t see it coming nor the slight queasiness.
Congrats! Definitely stealing this idea...now all I need is a girlfriend
Had a girlfriend who’s never flown. Took her flying on Valentine’s Day as a surprise present for her. Well, she ended up queasy and vomited, and two days later I was single.
Sounds like you dodged a bullet there, mate.
Well that's a cheap investment to save yourself loads of trouble later
You’re a pilot, you probably don’t have one, you’ve got eight.
I was thinking of getting people to write it on a beach in huge sand letters and fly over ;)
This is pretty unique for sure... congrats on the outcome, this should be a very cool story to tell down the road to your kids
Yes memorable to say the least!
That's pretty awesome, congratulations!
Now don't hold out on us, tell us the full story. How did you plan it? Was she along for the ride? How did you go about showing it to her? What was her reaction? And what factors made you choose to spell "marry me" with an "i" instead of a "y"?
She was along for the ride. I showed her on my iPad on the way back to BJC. She was quite shocked and incredibly happy. My “y” was interrupted by traffic so it was a poorly drawn y, turns for the y were difficult in the archer.
At first I thought those are some shitty steep turns fam. Impressive once I realized they were letters.
You and me both. Once I knew what I was looking for I could see it.
How did she find out? It's not like she'll feel the flight pattern and go "he just spelled marry me".
I showed her the iPad route on our way back to BJC
I’d have ruined it by just drawing a dick.
Congrats! I mean, unless she said “nope,” but who can resist a pilot?
"Will you marry me?"
"but we're still in the a-"
"I SAID GET OUT"
That was my thought too. Undo the belt and just pitch that thing to the side.
( but only to 59 degrees)
Creative, I like it!
Man your S Turns are absolute garbage.
Just kidding. Congrats!
Congratulations man. Quick question, if I get a girlfriend, and I propose to her. Does that mean I’m proposing her to be engaged or proposing to be married?
Congratulations, fellow Aspen member.
Thank you!!! I have been flying the cheetahs lately but decided to switch it up for this!
I'm sorry man, but I honestly thought your strategy was to S-turn your girlfriend into compliance.
You have to admit, it’s a pretty good strategy.
Nice job! What was your max AOA through all that writing?
Unfortunately I don’t have an AOA indicator but I help my altitude at 100 knots
hey - I can see my house from here! 😄 Congrats, OP! I heard the flying weather sucked today, so all things considered, well done!
Awesome I've always wanted to get married in a small plane
I see several penises
That is absolutely amazing. Flying is incredibly romantic. My first date with my pilot crush he flew me to dinner. I’ve been his enthusiastic right seater as often as I can ever since. Many wonderful blessings on your new life together!
I gotta say, that's some pretty strong over-ground mental visualization.
"y" is not your friend.
Really cool thing. I will steal this!
Easier to see it on a contrast background https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N557DT/history/20190414/1529Z/KBJC/KBJC
Didn’t even think to check FlightAware. Thanks!
