Sky-high proposal: Pilot gets down on one knee

Posted: Updated:

Passengers aboard a commercial flight from Detroit to Oklahoma City were treated to a little romance in the sky.

During flight prep, pilot Jon Emerson proposed to his flight attendant girlfriend, Lauren Gibbs.

It was the first time the airline-employee couple had ever flown professionally together.

Getting down on one knee, Emerson pulled a ring box out of his pocket as Gibbs broke down into happy tears.

She eventually said yes.

After sharing an emotional embrace with his new bride-to-be, Emerson jumped back onto the PA system to let the rest of the cabin know what had happened.
