Talk about going the distance.

Love wasn’t just in the air – it was hurtling through it at 120 kilometres an hour when one couple got engaged on the world’s longest zipline at Ras Al Khaimah’s Jebel Jais, the UAE’s highest mountain.

Adrian Mackay, from India, got down on one knee as his partner, Susan Kuruvilla, came flying in to land on the suspended platform.

Meanwhile, the Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority and Toro Verde UAE had arranged for a “Susan, will you marry me” banner to be strung 80 metres above the ground (just in case all that adrenaline left Mackay lost for words).

It was a big yes from the bride-to-be.

Mackay said: “I wanted to do something special to make our engagement unique and when I heard about the world’s longest zipline, I knew it would be the perfect way to propose.”

“I am so happy I got to ask the girl of my dreams to marry me and do the world’s longest zipline.”

Mackay is the first person to propose at the 2.83 kilometre-long zipline, which opened to the public in February.
