Mystery jet pack flier spotted near Los Angeles – and it’s not the first time

Someone in a jet pack was apparently spotted near Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. If this sounds familiar, that’s because this isn’t the first time this has happened in recent months, something Twitter could not get enough of as the story unfolded on social media.

“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,” according to a statement from the FAA. “The FAA alerted local law enforcement and will look into the report.”

“Flying object? Was it a UAV or or was it a jet pack?” someone can be heard saying over air traffic control inquiring about the report, according to a recording played on ABC News.

The air traffic control tower can also be heard saying: “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?”
