She said yes! Proposal Success at Wings & Wheels

The Surrey based airshow didn’t just delight crowds with planes and cars today (Sunday 27th August) but pulled of their first marriage proposal! Chiddingfold resident Hunor Gal surprised girlfriend Erika Lenart with a big romantic gesture with help from the team and the Tigers Parachute Display Team.
Under the guise of being picked randomly from the crowd to receive the salute from The Tigers, the pair were saluted before Hunor received a flag and unrolled it to present his girlfriend with the wording “Erika, will you marry me?”. Kneeling to a shocked and delighted Erika, Humor presented her with a beautiful ring.

After a slight pause the crowd were delighted to celebrate with the pair as she said yes! SIddeley got in on the action and presented the couple with a bottle of champagne before offering to be their ring ‘bear’er.

Jamie McAllister, Event Director Wings & Wheels comments: “We are so pleased and delighted to have been able to facilitate our first Wings & Wheels proposal. Congratulations to Hunor and Erika and thank you to the Tigers Parachute team for assisting.”
