Los Angeles: An investigation has been launched by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) after an American Airlines pilot spotted what appeared to be a man flying with a jet pack near Los Angeles International Airport.
“Tower, American 1997. We just passed a guy in a jet pack,” the first American Airlines pilot said in a call to the control tower, LA Times reported.
“American 1997, OK, thank you. Were they off to your left or right side?” the tower operator answers.
“Off the left side, maybe 300 yards or so, about our altitude,” the pilot responds.
FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said that agents at LAX were investigating the incident which was reported by two airline flighty crews.
