Man pulls off unusual inverted proposal

Unusual Inverted Proposal

Aerobatic pilot Ernest Artigas was determined to propose to his girlfriend Olivia in an original way.

He wanted to do something that she would never forget -- so what better way than to take Olivia on a flight, invert it, and propose?

"I was planning to give a big surprise to my girlfriend Olivia, asking her to marry me in a very, very special way, one that maybe nobody did before," Ernest told Storyful.

Since he is an aerobatic pilot, a great aviation lover and a video blogger, he thought he could combine all of those passions into a marriage proposal that would reflect his love with Olivia.

Ernest says that the flight was carefully planned -- he followed the normal procedures and even had a special checklist for the special moment.

He calls it "the most true video [he has] ever made."

Watch Olivia's reaction as she realizes what Ernest is up to.

Here is an aviation question.
What is the propeller on an air plane for?

It's a fan to keep the pilot cool. If it stops turning while in the air the pilot starts sweating.

I once gave a girl the surprise of her life. Although she wasn't completely upside down, it was still memorable.

Nice job, CAPTAIN!! That's the way to do it! Put out or GET OUT. If she had said "NO", the next checklist would have been the "Canopy Jettison" checklist. CONGRATULATIONS to the BOTH of you aviators! PILOT IN COMMAND!!

Seriously don't see the big deal. You are living and sleeping with someone for months or years and think this one special moment will make a difference. He could have proposed in the middle of sex when it's gooooooooood!
