Person with jet pack spotted flying at Los Angeles airport

An American Airlines flight made a similar report of a person in a jet pack near the airport back in September.

Amazingly, this is the second time this has happened at LAX; in August, two commercial pilots said they saw a man in a jet pack flying near the airport.

China Airlines flight 006 was approaching LAX about 1:45 p.m. when the 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", the Federal Aviation Administration said.

'American 1997, OK, thank you. "Left side or right side?"

According to the communications, air traffic control warned a JetBlue flight to "use caution... person on a jet pack reported 300 yards south."After the plane acknowledged the instruction, the controller concluded with: "Only in LA".

Just six weeks ago another suspected jetpack wearer crossed into the airport's flight path, which is one of the busiest in the United States.

Experts have expressed doubts about the seriousness or danger of the jet pack incidents.

"People would have heard it take off and land", he said.

We are aware that the person could be a woman, but we're going with "man" here for the sake of continuity, especially because the first pilot to spot him, described him as a "guy in a jetpack".

Such sightings at high altitudes are unusual given that the majority of jetpacks can not fly for longer than a few minutes and or reach extreme heights. No parachutes were sighted in the two incidents in Los Angeles. Download our newest episodes now! The FBI was involved in the investigation of the previous jetpack spotting on August 29, but any findings of that investigation have not yet been released to the public.
