Most passengers who get on a flight probably think their pilots are focussed on flying the plan when they're mid-air.

But what if they were in the cockpit playing Snapchat games?

That's what two EasyJet pilots have been filmed doing on a flight from Paris to Madrid.

The Sun have gotten their hands on screenshots of Michel Castelluci and his co-pilot messing around with Snapchat filters while they're at 30 thousand feet.

One shows the captain using a cuddly bear filter.

Another shows him using a shark filter on the co-pilot.

Some passengers weren't happy about the photos, saying the pilots were "irresponsible" while others accused them of being "unprofessional" 

The pair have now been suspended over the incident while EasyJet carries out a "disciplinary investigation".

The airline says the plane was on autopilot at the time and safety wasn't compromised at any point.
