Pilot Surprises Girlfriend With A Mid-Air Proposal

A pilot proposed to his girlfriend at the cockpit of his plane as he buzzed an airfield where his family held aloft a sign reading asking her to marry him. Jonathan Wilhite, a qualified pilot from Lakeland, Florida, secretly arranged the big proposal for girlfriend Lexi Meridionale with the help of their family and friends. Incredibly, he teed up the stunt a year earlier on New Year’s Eve 2018, when he stated his resolution for the year ahead was to take Lexi flying. Purposefully, he avoided taking her on a flight until the following New Year’s Eve when he asked his girlfriend if she had completed her resolutions. As they discussed it, Lexi quickly pointed out Jonathan hadn’t kept his resolution, so he pretended to quickly arrange a short notice flight to fulfil it. As they took off from Lakeland Linder International Airport, Jonathan flew them over some of the local sites including Disney World, Disney Springs, and Bok Tower. But descending into the nearby airfield of Winter Haven Regional Airport, Lexi spotted a group of people stood at the fringe of the runway. Concerned, she let Jonathan know, who buzzed the airfield so they could take a closer look. As the flew past, Lexi was gobsmacked to see 15 people holding up cards that spelled out: “Will you marry me?”.
