Mid-Flight Proposal Possible Thanks To Fellow Passengers

This is so stinkin' cute, we can't handle it. Never thought a mid-flight proposal would be this adorable but oh yeah, it totally was. Big shoutout to Good Morning America for initially showing us this story. Last week, on a regular Delta flight from Atlanta to Cancún, love literally took off when passenger Darian Brinkley popped the question to his girlfriend, Minita Tanner, mid-flight. The proposal happened with the help of the other passengers, high above the clouds, turning the airplane aisle into a romantic backdrop. While Tanner was briefly away in the lavatory, Brinkley enlisted the other passengers to hold up handwritten signs asking, "Will you marry me?" Other passengers had their cellphones on the ready to capture the airborne love story. Tanner came out to find Brinkley on one knee, ring in hand, silently asking her to become his co-pilot for life. She quickly nodded yes, blinking back happy tears while every eye on the airplane was on her. Brinkley sealed the deal with a ring and a hug while their fellow passengers cheered. Tanner later shared the good news on her Facebook page, writing, "Feeling loved 30k feet in the sky🥰."
