For the second time in two months, a person flying in a jet pack was reportedly spotted Wednesday above Los Angeles International Airport.
Around 1:45 p.m., a China Airlines crew reported seeing “what appeared to be someone in a jet pack” at an altitude of roughly 6,000 feet about seven miles northwest of the airport, according to FAA spokesman Ian Gregor.
“We just saw a flying object like a flying suit that’s passing by us…” the pilot said.
Local law enforcement was notified and is investigating the report.
The FBI released this statement to CBSLA: “The FBI is in contact with the FAA and is investigating multiple reports of what, according to witnesses, appeared to be an individual in a jetpack near LAX, including one today reported by a China Airlines crew. Anyone with information should contact the FBI at 310 477-6565.”
Air traffic radio chatter described someone reporting “a flying object” in the area.
