When it comes to true love, men have found some very different locations and backdrops to pop that magical question: "Will you marry me?"

There have been some romantic settings, some quirky ones too. And a Lebanese pilot found no better backdrop than the plane he was about to fly, to ask his long-time girlfriend if she would spend the rest of her life with him.

Ibrahim H El Khatib a captain with Middle East Airlines, popped the question using the passenger announcement system.

In a video that has gone viral on social media, El Khatib addresses the passengers on the PA system: "Dear passengers, I would like to take the opportunity to welcome a very special passenger on board today. Her name is Chirine El-Hajj Chehade. Could you please stand up?

“I would like to inform you, in front of 245 passengers, that I love you so much and I decided to continue with you for the rest of my life.”

Khatib then said: “Now I will ask you the famous question: Will you marry me?”

As Chirine walks the 'aisle,' El Khatib gets up from his pilot seat and is egged on by his co-pilot. He then wears is pilot suit and exits the cockpit with the ring case and heads towards Chirine.
