Did This 5-Mile Long Skywriting Marriage Proposal Work?by Lauren Passell on June 14, 2012
Did you catch the writing in the sky over Central Park last month? It read: “Christine Hall Will U Marry Me”. If you’re interested in copying the act, here’s exactly how it all went down, from Cristina Kuiper, owner of Wolrd Wide Sky Advertising:
“What was done in the sky is referred to as a ‘Tag-on.’ This is offered when we are already flying for another client and it’s along our flight path. This keeps the cost down and the price is generally between $1800 to $2500. That includes up to 25 characters. Each character is as tall as the Empire State Building and the total message is carried out to be five miles long. The fleet (five aircraft) perform at an elevation of 10,000′. The ‘marriage proposal’ is visible for anyone to see within a 15 mile radius.”
If your sky message isn’t on the flight path, it costs more like $15,000.
Hope she said yes. Really f*cking hope she said yes.
