A person with a jet pack was spotted near Los Angeles International Airport again this week—flying at more than a mile in the air.
The Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement to USA Today that “a China Airlines crew reported seeing what appeared to be someone in a jet pack at an approximate altitude of 6,000 feet, about seven miles northwest of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) around 1:45 p.m. Wednesday. The FAA alerted local law enforcement and will look into the report.”
In air traffic control recordings reported by ABC News, someone can be heard asking about the report, saying, “Flying object? Was it a UAV [Unmanned Aerial Vehicle] or was it a jet pack?”
“There was a jet pack reported about seven miles west of you. There’s no way you can go and check that out can you?” another person in the recording says.
It’s unclear if the jet-packer is the same person seen flying around
