NBC Chopper4’s Brad Freitas surprises girlfriend with soaring proposal

NBC Washington’s eye in the sky, Brad Freitas, planned an interesting and fitting marriage proposal for the love of his life.

Freitas, aerial photographer for WTOP’s news partner NBC4, brought his girlfriend of six years, Kara, in the helicopter Friday to ask her to marry him.

During the flight, an unsuspecting Kara spotted a large sign on the ground that was held by family and friends from all over the country.

It read, “Kara will you marry Brad?”

Joyfully, she responded, “Are you serious, I’m going to cry!”

Of course, as Brad’s producers pointed out — nothing was official until they were safely on the ground, and he was on one knee.

Check out the full proposal below:
