I can't imagine there's much banter to be had in the aviation industry, given that most of your days are spent flying huge planes. But this pilot proved there can be some fun and games in between all those pesky long-haul flights - finding time to complete the famous Kiki Challenge.

Pilot Alejandra Manriquez can be seen in the video pushing a lever before clambering out of her cock pit and down the plane's staircase, joining a woman thought to be her flight attendant on the ground and dancing alongside the plane as it moves forward.

The impressive video soon went viral, having racked up over 50,000 views on Twitter.

According to the Daily Mail, Alejandra first started out in the industry as a flight attendant, before moving on to flight school at 22.

She now apparently flies private jets across the Atlantic Ocean - having flown to over 40 countries in her time.

On aviation website 152 Aviation, Alejandra said: "Aviation is a beautiful, but very demanding career that you must love in order to be able to successfully pursue it with enough passion, overcoming all the obstacles that are going to be in your way.

"Because that is a fact, there is no easy way to something worth achieving! But now I thank life for every rock along my way because they prepared me to be the strongest version of myself.

"I needed these to become a better person and a professional pilot."

The Kiki Challenge - also known as the #InMyFeelings challenge - usually involves people jumping out of their cars and dancing to the popular Drake song that inspired it.

It's been the latest viral dance trend to sweep the internet, with people across the world giving it a go and finding weird and wonderful ways to put their mark on it.

One guy in Russia took things one step further and set his own car on fire for his vid, though he was reportedly arrested shortly after.

It was also taken up by one of FBI's most wanted criminals, who's wanted for two murders and had a $100,000 ransom on his head, who decided to take a stab at it when he was being taken to a plane to be extradited to face his charges.

Many big names have also got involved, including Will Smith, Ciara and, er, Jeremy Clarkson. The former Top Gear host doesn't quite manage to hit the nail on the head with his version, but fair dos for trying mate.
