A video of the moment a pilot publicly reacted to a “pranksters” disgusting move has been caught on camera. In the footage, which has since gone viral, the captain of the aeroplane can be heard issuing a stark warning to passengers.
The footage was filmed by another passenger onboard, and though little can be seen in the clip, it is the soundbite of the captain’s annoyed response which has garnered attention.
The video is captioned with the words: “When someone airdrops p**n on flights”.
It is alleged an anonymous trickster used the air-drop function of their iPhone, which has the ability to share data and media with other iPhone users, to transport a dirty video around the aircraft.
Reportedly, the prank caused such a stir the flight was delayed.
Following the incident, the pilot can be heard making an announcement.
He says: “We take this seriously.
“I strongly suggest that anybody who has a kid on board perhaps who has an iPhone to make sure that the Bluetooth is shut off and that they can’t accept air-drop from anybody that is not in their contact list.
“We’ve already incurred enough of a delay and we can thank the prankster for that so hats off to you whoever you are.

“We’re going to get rolling and get you all to Phoenix as quickly at this point and as safely as we can.”
Though the pilot seems aggravated by the move, many of those who commented on the post – shared by Instagram account @PassengerShaming – saw the funny side of things.
“Now THAT’S in-flight service!!!” joked one commenter.
Another said: “This is a good one.”
Someone else urged the pilot to “lighten up”.
However, there were some who understood why the incident could have caused such a stir.
“It’s funny but then it’s upsetting because of the delay,” wrote one person.
Another highlighted how wrong it would be if the video was accidentally viewed by “a minor”.
Other commenters pointed the finger at the iPhone users who had accepted the air-drop video.
“If you haven’t figured out air-drop you deserve to get air-drops from strangers,” commented one person.
Another questioned: “Wait – why would you accept an airdrop from someone you don’t know?”
There was one unlikely theory pitted about in the comments section too.
“Plot twist: it was the captain that did it,” a viewer suggested.
