US aviation authorities have launched an investigation into an explicit video of a couple having sex while skydiving.
The video, which was posted on the blog of Alex Torres, a pornstar and part-time skydiving instructor, shows him and a woman having sex as they freefall over Kern County, California, the Daily Mail reported.
The controversy and police investigation was sparked off after parents got wind that students at a nearby high school discovered the video and began sharing the video online, which shows Torres having sex in a plane before jumping out in tandem and continuing the act midair.
At one point during the video, the couple are shown having sex in a jump seat next to the pilot.
According to kget.com, Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said that that the watchdog had no explicit policy on sexual conduct in private planes, but any activity that could jostle a pilot or hamper his ability to concentrate could be a violation of federal aviation guidelines.
Although there were no charges pending after police investigations, Torres has been sacked since the incident and David Chrouch, owner of Skydive Taft, said that he has not yet decided what will happen to Howell.
