It's a Mystery

One more lucky marriage proposal today! Even luckier in the circumstances of the weather over the last week.

Northern Ireland was a washout and you'll understand why if you saw the news from the Lake District with two thousand runners stuck up a mountain in torrential rain and gales.

The cloud was too low to support the Chelsea game on Sunday but at least our luck was in for 'Heroes of Sport' over Manchester central on Friday afternoon.

So congratulation to "James" on his proposal to "Jo" of Doncaster this afternoon. Rather like that famous quip from the film, "'Shakespeare in Love' "It's a mystery to me but it all works out in the end."

Proppa Weather - Almost Summer

You might be forgiven for thinking that summer had returned today. The last time I recall the weather was this good in October was in 2000 and it helped us achieve the unexpected, with the BT Vision banners over the Scotland vs. Norway international football match at Hampden Park and three league matches in Belfast with a second aircraft at the same time!

Tomorrow, Sunday, looks set to start with fog and we have the beach races to cover for Proppa.com at Weston Supermare, with a fallback - if it's foggy - to the UK Superbikes Championships at Brands Hatch.

The late summer weather has bought out the lovers as well and I've to fly two marriage proposals within ninety-minutes; one over Whistable Harbour and the second past Canterbury Cathedral on Sunday afternoon. The 100% proposal success record still stands!

Scott Loves Emma

Following the worst possible conditions for a marriage proposal on Saturday, a delighted Scott Greenhill writes:

"I would like to say a very big thank you to you and your team at Airads for making the day a very special one for Emma and myself. I have been very impressed with your service and professionalism from start to finish. The weather was against you and despite this you still flew the banner!"

BBC Essex radio went looking for the mysterious Emma and recorded a nice interview on the subject as did the local paper.
