This fighter pilot could not attend his brother's wedding, so instead he filmed a touching congratulatory message from the cockpit of his Harrier jet.
Brandon Krivohlavy married Mandy Takacs last weekend in Austin, Texas.
The 30-year-old art director knew his brother, who has been deployed to Afghanistan, could not make the ceremony.
But he did not expect the mid-air tribute.
"Needless to say, it brought everyone to tears," Mr Krivohlavy said in a comment alongside the video he posted to YouTube today.
The pilot filmed his two-and-a-half-minute tribute as he flew high in the skies over Afghanistan.
"I can't begin to tell you how excited I am for the both of you," he says at the start of the video, as the country's desert landscape rolls away below him.
The tribute ends with the pilot flipping down his visor and performing a 360-degree roll.
"We have to say, this may be the best brother ever," AOL's Morning Rush blog said.
