LAS VEGAS (PIX11) — So how should one kill time while being stranded on an airplane that’s going nowhere? Bust out some R. Kelly, that’s how.

Passengers aboard a Phoenix-bound Allegiant Airlines flight on Sunday nearly went delirious after spending 5 hours on a Las Vegas tarmac in two separate planes.


To avoid a mutiny, the passengers banded together in song and sang what else — the R&B crooner’s “I Believe I Can Fly.”

The video, which was uploaded on YouTube,  has since gone viral with nearly a quarter of a million views.
