The FFA 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.

Freaky dancing: The video starts with a signature lone dancer in the aisle of the plane
Suddenly everyone is dancing including one guy dressed as a banana and another person wearing an Abraham Lincoln mask
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.

‘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.
