Incredible footage shows dad sending message from his boat to daughter leaving on a plane

  • But rather than a text, it was actually received while she was overhead and he was on the ocean below
  • ‘Infinity times infinity’

If you get a ride and a hug at the airport from your dad you’re lucky enough – but this father using his boat to send his daughter on a plane a goodbye sendoff is next level.

Los Angeles-based TikToker, Camille Zea, was leaving Los Angeles International Airport on a plane bound for Europe for a long trip – and her dad wanted her to know that distance would never tear them apart.

“Who’s cutting my onions?” one commenter asked.

The lucky daughter took to TikTok to share the sentimental moment.

Using the wake of his boat on the waves of the Pacific Ocean, he maneuvered his boat in a figure-eight to ‘draw’ an infinity symbol.

Another strange phenomenon that has been captured from a plane window is a passenger accidentally capturing a rocket launch from their plane seat in spectacular footage.

What’s more, an unusual mid-air UFO encounter left plane passengers astonished and bewildered – although such incidents have been largely debunked.

The tear-jerking video has been shared a massive 8.5 million times since it was posted last year.

“My dad on his boat signaling to me as I leave for my big Europe trip,” her on-screen caption said.

“Infinity times infinity. Right back at ya dad.”

The accompanying Sweet Disposition soundtrack by The Temper Trap was the final straw for many.

“This and Sweet Disposition? Crying right now,” one said.

“Come on, Sweet Disposition? Who’s cutting my onions?” said another.

“So, dad reveal? He’s our dad now,” quipped a third.

“Would’ve shouted to the whole flight that that was my dad,” another said.
