This is the thrilling moment a man took the plunge and proposed to his girlfriend while they skydived from 13,000ft.
Jason Pack, 37, had planned ahead to create the ultimate romantic scene to top his girlfriend Katie Line’s first-ever parachute jump.
The telecommunications worker arranged for Katie’s family to hold up giant letters spelling out ‘Katie, marry me?’ which she saw while hurtling towards the ground.
After landing first, Jason dashed over with an engagement ring before getting down on one knee in front of a gobsmacked Katie.
Luckily, Katie said yes as her family cheered and congratulated the couple.
The adrenaline-pumping proposal was caught on film as Jason and Katie took part in a charity skydive at Sibson Aerodrome near Peterborough, Cambridge.
Jason said: ‘I’d arranged with the instructors to land before Katie so I’d have time to prepare the proposal sign.
‘They went to the extreme of giving me a smaller parachute, spiralling more in the air to get down to the ground quicker and free-falling for longer.
‘I then had the family on the ground with some large painted signs and then I just hoped for the best that Katie could read it from the air.’
Footage shows Jason rushing up to Katie moments after she landed and getting down on one knee to complete his romantic gesture.
Administrator Katie, 30, said: ‘I think I just nodded my head to be honest.
‘I think I was too shocked. It was amazing. As I started coming down, I could see all the letters and then obviously I saw Jason running towards me.
‘The instructor kept saying to me “can you read that sign?” and at first I didn’t know what he meant so I was looking for road signs but then I spotted my name and it all came together.
‘It all kind of just sunk in to one shock.
‘I have to say it was very romantic of Jason and I’m so impressed it went so well. It took my breath away and is something I’ll never forget.’
The couple, who have three children, raised £5,000 for Cransley Hospice in nearby Kettering.
They plan to get married in 2023 when they hope coronavirus restrictions will have eased to allow them to hold a big ceremony with family and friends.
