VIDEO: Pilot Ryan Thompson fakes plane trouble before proposing to girlfriend
There’s nothing like faking a near-death scenario to express your love.
With hidden camera rolling, Pilot Ryan Thompson took his girlfriend, 28-year-old Carlie Kennedy, for a joyride in a tiny plane above Chicago. As seen in the clip, the couple is enjoying the scenery from above until the plane begins to jerk and the look on Kennedy’s face quickly turns to one of doom.
Thompson tells Kennedy that the flight controls aren’t responding and asks her to remain calm, fully knowing that the plane is perfectly fine the whole time.
He then asks her to read from a list of emergency instructions.
She then reads through the list’s “ring engagement procedure.” The paper instructs her to determine whether the pilot in command is a “good mate.”
Still not quite catching on, she then reads, “Note: He will always love and honor you.”
Just as Thompson reaches for a ring, Kennedy reads the final item on the procedure list: “Will you marry me?”
Rejoiced, and far less angry than we would be, Kennedy laughs and cries at the same time and says “yes.”
Spoiler Alert: They didn’t crash.
