Couple Getting ‘Busy’ While Skydiving Sparks Probe By U.S. Aviation Watchdog

Skydiving is a thrilling sport by nature, but the adrenaline that comes with jumping from a plane flying thousands of feet above the ground isn’t enough for some people. This was the case for Alex Torres, a skydiving instructor and pornstar who recorded a stunt so outrageous that it prompted the FAA to investigate.

Torres released a video of himself skydiving while having sex with Hope Howell, a receptionist at Skydive Taft where he worked as a skydiving instructor. According to the Huffington Post, they decided to film the video early in the morning to avoid public nudity complaints.

In the video, Torres and Howell began the act inside the plane, then continued after they jumped. Torres posted the video on his personal blog but soon took it down once it came to public attention.

Police began investigating when the video started to make the rounds at a local high school, prompting officials to make a complaint against Skydive Taft. While their actions were not criminal, the FAA stepped in to investigate whether or not the pilot was distracted while the act occurred, which is a violation of the safety code.

In an interview with 23ABC, Howell said that their intention with the video was to catch the attention of Howard Stern. After the news coverage of their stunt, the radio host eventually got in touch with the couple for an interview.

‘I am happy I did it. I wouldn’t change it for the world, and it did get the attention of Howard Stern, which was our whole goal in general,”’ Howell said.

Torres was fired from his instructing job at Skydive Taft, and it is uncertain if Howell kept her receptionist position at the company.
