Here's one way to pop the question, doing it thousands of feet in the air. That's how one Henderson couple got engaged today.

Brad Higginson surprised his girlfriend, Allison Smith, by taking her on a helicopter ride. While in the air, Higginson asked that all important question, and Smith said "yes."

The copter then landed at Benton's Landscaping, where family and friends were waiting for the newly engaged couple.

"We just wanted something special for her," said Higginson. "And she's been good to me, and she needed something that we'd never forget."

"I'll treasure this for the rest of my life," said Smith. "It's a once in a lifetime thing. You don't expect to go on a helicopter ride and get engaged."

The couple have not announced a wedding day yet.
