A Beautiful Aerial Glimpse of the Future

My good friend Patrick told me the story a few weeks ago of how he proposed to his wife Alex back in 2005.  Though not a pilot, Patrick had always been an aviation buff and arranged to propose to the love of his life from above Ocean Beach.  Please click through to hear the wonderfully touching story of his proposal to Alex from the back of a Trinidad.

The photos are terrific, as is the planning and vision that Patrick had for this day.

I was particularly struck by Alex’s description of her initial moments aloft, “I saw hope. I felt light and life for a moment felt effortless. I suppose this is why some people love to learn how to fly.”
