    Shakes on a plane! FAA dismayed by Harlem shake plane dance on a plane

    The Harlem shake has gone aloft, breaking out on commercial airline flights, and appearing in dozens of YouTube videos.Some of the videos were taped aboard planes on the ground. But the Federal Aviation Administration says it is looking into one instance of high-altitude dancing.And airline pilots, flight attendants and others say the fad presents serious safety and security problems.

    If that's all the FAA is worried about then they have serious issues.

    Does this mean you don't want to be the lead dancer in the O/R Harlem Shake the next time a group of us gets together?

    Update:

    The students said they had the approval of the flight crew, who let them use the plane's public address system to tell other passengers about their intentions.
    The seat belt sign was off during the videotaping, which took less than a minute, team members said.
    Frontier Airlines said it could not comment because of the FAA investigation, but said "all safety measures were followed and the seat belt sign was off."
    "If I was king for a day, the criticism would first be leveled at the airline for encouraging this type of thing," said Tilmon, the retired pilot. "It may seem cute but you cannot tell me it is safe to have that number of people up out of their seat jumping up and down."
    "If they're on my airplane, they're going to either sit down and fasten their seat belt, or I'm going to find a policeman to help them do it."
    A Harlem shake dance could also be used by terrorists to divert a crew's attention, the experts said.
    "I think a federal air marshal might find that a bit confusing," Wallace said.
