A couple in Kern County filmed themselves having sex on a plane and mid-air and set it to the tune of Katy Perry's E.T.

Skydive Taft instructor Alex Torres and receptionist Hope Howell conducted the stunt on the DL, but then they posted it to the internet. The tape went viral at a high school in Taft. Ironically, one of the students who first posted it was expressing his disgust at the the video, according to local NBC affiliate KGET. The video was apparently a stunt Torres put together to get the attention of Howard Stern.

Torres has been fired, but Howell hasn't. No charges have been filed, because no one else witnessed them having sex and Torres posted it on an age-restricted site. The FAA might investigate this mile-high incident, just to make sure they weren't, uh, distracting the pilot.
