Boeing’s 787-8 Dreamliner has just departed Auckland International Airport signalling the end of its first visit to New Zealand, but not before one young man proposed to his girlfriend in the aircraft’s cockpit.
In front of Air New Zealand and Boeing staff and more than 100 strangers onsite to see the 787 for the first time, Aucklander Ryan Manson yesterday afternoon proposed to his girlfriend Pia Parker while they sat in the two pilot seats.
She said yes.
Ryan and Pia announced their engagement via our Air New Zealand twitter account www.twitter.com/flyairnz, which has been awash with messages of congratulations since including:
