A woman gets the surprise of a lifetime after airline pilot boyfriend proposes…35,000 feet above seal level.

Capt. Dooley Ellis had an important announcement to make aboard an international flight from Melbourne, Australia, to Los Angeles. His girlfriend happened to be on board, flying to see her family in South America.

After takeoff, the man brought the plane to cruising altitude and grabbed the intercom to say a few words to a “very special passenger on board. Her name is Anna.”

Apparently, Capt. Dooley was worried she wouldn’t return to him soon enough. He was prepared to “make sure she comes back to me in Australia.” Then came the most important, romantic, shocking question of all.

At that moment, the airplane captain exited the cockpit, finding Anna in first class. Holding a bouquet of roses, Capt Dooley got down on one knee and pulled a ring out of his pocket.
