Proposing to your partner is a great and emotional moment for anyone. While some try to propose in private, some go all the way to propose in the most unique way possible. An air traffic controller found the absolute best way to propose to his girlfriend.

He says, "My girlfriend is on that plane. I was gonna propose to her while you were in the air but I chickened out." The pilot replied, "Ah come on, that’s bad. That’s really, really bad. Give us her name and we’re going to tell her that." The ATC asked if it was too late and the pilot said, "Not too late. Not too late for anything," and he then asked him to speak to everyone on the plane. The controller begins, "Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. I'm your air traffic controller speaking to you. The reason I'm speaking to you is because there's a very special lady on your flight this evening. Her name is Christine Waters." 

He then goes ahead to speak with his girlfriend, "Christine, I’m crazy in love with you, can’t imagine my life without you. You can’t see me right now but I’m down on one knee. I have a ring in my hand. Christine, will you make me the happiest man in the world and be my wife?" The entire plane was excited to hear this and the pilot told the ATC, "Everybody’s jumping up and down – and she said yes. Nicely done, by the way. Very, very nice." The incident actually happened in 2009 but it has gone viral on the internet only now.

I did wish for something I hope it becomes true." He turns to Sarah and says, "Where is it?" and then takes out the ring from his pocket Sarah can't believe her eyes and shouts repeatedly, "This is not real! This is not real!"
