A Staffordshire secretary was stunned when her boyfriend proposed to her as they prepared to jump from 14,000ft.
Lisa Brindley and Grant Taylor are planning to marry next autumn
Lisa Brindley, 26, was taking her first skydive with 36-year-old Grant Taylor, a keen parachutist, when he popped the question in Florida earlier this month.
The couple, who both work for JCB in Rocester, plan to marry next autumn.
Ms Brindley said: "I was already going through the range of emotions about the jump out of the plane, so when Grant proposed my head was just spinning."
'Spur of the moment'
She added: "But it seemed to scramble my thoughts and all I could think about as I made that jump was: 'How am I going to have my hair for the wedding?'"
Mr Taylor, who lives with his fiancée in Cheadle, said: "Skydiving is a major part of my life and I was thrilled Lisa agreed to do the jump so she could appreciate what I do.
"The proposal was a real spur of the moment thing but it just seemed the right thing to do at the right time - when she said 'yes' I was a very happy man."
He is now preparing to carry out a jump at JCB's 60th anniversary Open Day on 10 September.
