NEVIS, Minn. - An aviation student in northern Minnesota pulled off a sky-high marriage proposal by writing "Marry Me" in the snow, then flying his long-time girlfriend over his handiwork. Gavin Becker enlisted his family's help to pen the life-changing question using a snow blower on the frozen Eight Crow Wing Lake near Nevis. Ed Becker, Gavin's father, tells KARE-TV that it took about 4½ hours to create the 7.5-meter-tall letters and a huge heart. Gavin Becker, a University of North Dakota aviation student, then rented a plane and took his high-school sweetheart, Olivia Toft, for a trip over the lake. Toft, realizing it was no joke, told him "yes." - AP
