“We are both big aviation enthusiasts so I thought the airport would be a good place to do it,” Heinrich told InsideEdition.com. “I figured everything out really last minute and I’m just an avid guitar player so it kind of all worked out.”
Heinrich, 25, is a student pilot at Akron-Canton Airport and some of the employees helped him put together the idea.
The two have been dating for three years and met while in a plane-building club at the University of Akron.

And, of course, she said yes.
“I was very surprised and I was really glad he did it. I was really happy to be marrying him,” Hammel said.
