Seattle Seahawks linebacker KJ Wright (#50) can be forgiven if years from now he doesn’t remember everything he saw during a tour in late December of Boeing’s facility in Everett, Wash. That’s because his VIP tour of the Everett Flightline and factory ended with him on bended knee before his longtime girlfriend, Nathalie.
As two Boeing employees wearing bow ties with their coveralls unfurled a banner saying “Nathalie – will you marry me” down the side of a 787, Wright popped the question before his shocked girlfriend and her family who were visiting for the holidays. Needless to say, the answer was yes!
Wright devised the unique proposal plan because his now-fiancee’s father is an aviation enthusiast who he knew would enjoy a tour of Boeing’s Everett site. Wright was joined on the tour by another notable guest - teammate Jimmy Graham - a registered pilot.
