Aviation danger probe after EVERY passenger on flight leaps in the air at the same time at 30,000ft for Harlem Shake flash mob
- The flash mob was organized by members of the Colorado College Ultimate Frisbee Team
- A video of the entire plane dancing has received more than 450,000 views on YouTube
- The FAA is investigating the incident to establish if there was a danger to the safety of the plane and the passengers
The FAA is investigating an incident on a flight from Denver to San Diego when an entire plane load of passengers took part in a mid-air flash mob.
Video shot on the Frontier flight shows passengers jumping up and down mid-flight to the latest viral dance craze – the Harlem Shake.
While the video has gone viral with more than 450,000 views on YouTube, safety experts have voiced concerns that the prank unnecessarily put the entire plane in jeopardy.
The flash mob was organized by members of the Colorado College Ultimate Frisbee Team who were on their way to a tournament in San Diego over President’s Day weekend.
Somehow they managed to convince fellow passengers of all ages to get up and pump their fists to the dance tune by DJ Baauer.
The video starts with a signature lone dancer in the aisle of the plane. As the beat rises to a crescendo, almost all of the plane’s passengers join the freaky dancing, including one guy dressed as a banana and another person wearing an Abraham Lincoln mask.
Spokesman Allen Kenitzer confirmed on Thursday that the FAA is investigating and are particularly keen to confirm what phase the flight was in during the dancing in the aisles.
According to aviation expert Glen Winn, carrying out such a prank at 30,000 feet raises safety concerns and isn’t advisable.
‘It’s evident to me that one, the crew lost control in the cabin… I’m just amazed the crew let this happen,’ he told 10News.
Winn said there were several serious safety concerns for those on the plane, including loss of pressurization.
‘You have a weight and balance issue because that many people moving around in an aircraft, you could have the plane potentially losing control and its very, very dangerous,’ he said.
The video was shot by sophomore Matt Zelin who claims they didn’t do anything wrong and had checked with staff before carrying out the prank.
‘I don’t see there being any reason why this should cause any trouble. We asked the staff and they said it was safe,’ he told Colorado College student newspaper The Catalyst.
A Frontier Airlines spokeswoman has said that all safety measures were followed and the seat belt sign was off at the time that the dance was recorded.
