EDGELEY - It's like something right out of the movies; a marriage proposal you can only see from the skies.

The pictures above were sent to WDAY-TV from farm field artist Gene Hanson in Edgeley.

Gene had the chance to help out his grandson Jaden Wirrenga of Fargo propose to his girlfriend Brooke Beske in a special way.

Gene made the 10-acre wide message and under the ruse of Brooke just getting her first airplane ride, she also saw the message.

Once on the ground, Jaden officially proposed on one knee, and Brooke said "yes."
