Man Proposes By Faking a Plane Crash [VIDEO]
Usually the "'Til death do us part" doesn't happen until the actual wedding, but for one surprised young woman, it felt like it was happening thousands of feet in the air.
Carlie Kennedy thought her boyfriend, pilot Ryan Thompson just wanted to take her for a quick joyride over Chicago. Little did she know that he had other plans. Plans that included making her fear for her life.
In the video below, things seem to start out just fine. They run through the pre-flight checklist, taxi down the runway, and leave the ground in small, and what appears to be, cramped plane for a spectacular birds-eye view of the Windy City. Then things seem to take a turn for the worse, at least in Carlie's eyes.
Unbeknownst to Carlie, Ryan sends the plane into a slight nose dive then proceeds to tell his girlfriend that she needs to stay calm. He then asks her to read over checklist he created that she thinks spells out what actions must be taken in the event the flight controls become unresponsive. It's a checklist that includes checking a variety of pressures within the cabin and note that says the cause of the problem could be that the "rings may be unengaged" and that the "ring engagement procedure" should be initiated.
To someone who's not familiar with the inner workings of an aircraft, and fears they will be dead in a matter of minutes when the plane careens into the ground below, the "ring engagement procedure" seems like a logical process in getting the controls back up and running again. Obviously, there are no such rings, which is made evident when the first set of instructions for the procedure is to determine if the pilot is a "good mate", followed by the all-important question, "Will you marry me?" Find out Carlie's answer by checking out the video.
What would you have done if you were in Carlie's seat? Say, "yes", or slap him across the face and never want to see him again?
