Pilot Fakes Emergency, Proposes Marriage


Another day, another cleverly romantic and emotionally manipulative wedding proposal. Last month, a Russian man made the news for faking his own death before proposing to his now wife. Today, the Daily News reports on the man who faked not only his own imminent death but also his beloved's before popping the Question. A handsome pilot (is there any other kind?) whose YouTube handle is Ryan Thompson posted a video in which he fakes a flight emergency and asks his equally telegenic girlfriend/co-pilot to read the emergency "ring engagement" procedure checklist. It ends in a marriage proposal, which must sound nice when so vividly contrasted with meeting one's demise in a fiery crash.
