Love is in the Air!
During one of Sunday's Barton flights, our team got the tip off from passenger Louise Gladwin that she would like to propose to her partner John Nelson whilst airborne over Old Trafford football stadium.
Louise had a quiet word with our pilot Capt. Guy Cowper, who arranged for the internal intercom to be isolated for Louise to make her 'Leap Year proposal' to John whilst flying by Old Trafford. Says Guy, "It was a real treat to flick the internal intercom back on whilst flying away from Old Trafford and learn that John's reply was in the affirmative!"
Louise produced some delicious celebratory chocolates which were enjoyed during this memorable flight. Barton Control Tower were advised the helicopter was inbound with a newly engaged couple and they kindly asked Guy to hover alongside the Tower whilst they took this really nice shot showing a smiling Louise in the rear seat!
Our thanks to Air Traffic Officer Martin Knowles for this picture and all his help with the pleasure flights on Sunday.
Our very best wishes go to John and Louise as we wish them a very happy future together, as the song goes....'Love is in the air....!'
