I didn't think she sounded gullible.

Yep.

Perhaps I'll get around to posting the rest of the TR at some point. We'll see.

I should have everyone know, my wife is not as gullible as this story makes her seem (or even at all).

I spent over a week analyzing how to answer every question in a way that would not evoke any sort of suspicion, and the fact of the matter is, we had previously planned to go to the airport passed security to watch planes.

This just was the perfect opportunity to do it :)
Awesome, I guess a lawyer (I think) like you could do something like this, but most here would not be able to pull something like this off.

I'm curious how many people here think they could pull that off, with out their wife realizing/questioning (a lot) that something has to be up.

It would depend on your wife. And if you normally enjoy watching airplanes. And it would depend on your personality. If you one day just wake up and say oh let's go stop by the airport when you never have done anything remotely like that in your life it probably wouldn't work too well.

My wife read the TR with me, and she says that she would have absolutely refused to board a plane if I told her that I was planning on refunding the ticket.  But the greater challenge with pulling off a surprise like this for me is that I would have spilled the beans myself.

It was unbelievably hard to keep it from her as I was as excited then as she was gonna be. In fact, a couple of times it was almost too much for me during the days leading up to the trip, and I almost spilled. Glad I didn't :P

She doesnt read DDF or you didn't mention it here before the act?

It's bad enough when one spouse does DDFing. Having both do it would quickly cause a household to disintegrate.
