The FAA and FBI are investigating a startling report of a man wearing a jetpack allegedly seen flying 3,000 feet in the air above Los Angeles International Airport. Two airline crews alerted authorities to the incident Sunday night.
Now, I’m a huge fan of movies like The Rocketeer and Iron Man but is it really possible for something or someone like this to exist? Well, two pilots definitely saw something. Whether it was an alien or a superhero, there was something flying high above LAX airport. FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said Tuesday that agents at LAX were investigating after the pilot reported the incident to the control tower.
“The FBI is aware of the reports by pilots on Sunday and is working to determine what occurred,” the agency said in a statement.
The Federal Aviation Administration also confirmed receiving the report. “Two airline flight crews reported seeing what appeared to be someone in a jet pack as they were on their final approach to LAX around 6:35 p.m. Sunday,” spokesman Ian Gregor told City News Service. “The FAA alerted local law enforcement to the reports and is looking into these reports.”
In the meantime, be on the lookout for the guy above! Pun fully intended…
