'On The Fly' Features A Pair Of High School Sweethearts Reuniting After 51 Years

The Internet isn't just helping the younger generations connect. One pair of old high school sweethearts reconnected online after 51 years apart, and their story made its way to TV thanks to the latest installment of "On the Fly" (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on TLC) when Janette booked a flight from Florida to Houston to see John again in person.

She was so nervous about their meeting, it was like they'd become teenagers all over again. The couple shared a kiss -- that appeared to rekindle some of that hot romance right away for Janette -- and pored over old photos of the two of them together more than half a century ago.

John marveled at how pretty she was then, and was quick to add that she still looked good. The chemistry was unmistakable, making it no surprise that the couple has since rekindled their romance. Things are apparently going so well, Janette is considering a permanent relocation to Houston.

Catch the next flight with "On the Fly," Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
