- An American Air Force Sergeant proposes to his girlfriend on the wing of an F-15
- The proposal happened moments after she took her first flight in the fighter jet
- The event took place at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina
An Air Force Sergeant in America has proposed to ‘the love of his life’ on the wing of an F-15 fighter jet.
Video captured the moment at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina, US, when Sgt. Charles Fairchild got down on one knee on top of the tactical combat aircraft.
It happened seconds after his girlfriend of two years, Amber Neeb, had her first flying experience in one of the F-15’s he oversees as the base’s Staff Sergeant.
F-15’s can fly at speeds of 3000 km/h and it was likely Ms Neeb had ‘jellied-legs’ when she landed.
Sgt. Fairchild has been serving in the Air Force for the last 11 and a half years.
He decided to ask his girlfriend to marry him on ‘spouse visiting’ day at the Air Force Base, which opened in 1942.
In the video the couple are seen stepping out of the aircraft as Sgt. Fairchild leads Ms Neeb onto its wing.
He doesn’t waste any time and takes out a ring from his pocket and gets down on one knee to ask for her hand in marriage.

Other Air Force members are heard clapping and two women are holding a sign that confirms, ‘Will you marry me Amber’.
Finally, the couple kiss and make their way down the F-15 to be congratulated by those who were lucky enough to catch the moment themselves.
