You see the headline and consider to your self, “there is no way that occurred.” But according to two separate airline pilots, it did.
According to WIVB, federal and regional authorities have launched an investigation following a particular person in a jet pack was reportedly sighted close to the Los Angeles International Airport, at three,000 feet in the air.
The incident occurred on Sunday evening about six:30 pm. It was initially reported by an American Airline pilot, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
Here’s what the pilot stated to the air targeted traffic controller.
“Tower, American 1997. We just passed a guy in a jet pack,” the American Airlines pilot reports to the manage tower.
Air targeted traffic manage asked which side the man in the jet pack was on.
“Off the left side, at possibly … 300 yards or so, about our altitude,” the pilot responds.
Not only that, but a Southwest Airline pilot also reported witnessing the guy in the jet back.
“We just saw the guy pass by us in a jet pack,’’ the pilot says in the recording.
The FAA and FBI are each seeking into the incident.
If a jet pack can get you three,000 feet in the air, um, no thank you…
