For the second time this year, a jetpack was seen flying near commercial airplanes near Los Angeles International Airport.
The incident took place around 1:40 p.m. on Wednesday when the FAA reported that a China Airlines crew stated that they see something that looked like a person on a jetpack at an approximate altitude of 6,000 feet.
The jetpack was spotted about seven miles northwest of LAX.
The FAA alerted local law enforcement and will investigate the report.
On August 31st, an American Airlines pilot stated that he saw a mystery person in a jetpack flying in the path of incoming jets.
Both of these jetpack sightings of the year are under investigation. It is expected that today’s incident is related to the one over the summer.
