After a possible sighting of a man flying a jetpack in the area, pilots flying into and out of Los Angeles International Airport were issued a warning.
The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed that on Wednesday evening, a pilot contacted air traffic control to report a possible sighting of a man wearing a jetpack flying in the area.
“A Boeing 747 pilot reported seeing an object that might have resembled a jetpack 15 miles east of LAX at 5,000 feet altitude,” a Federal Aviation Administration representative told KABC-TV. “Out of an abundance of caution, air traffic controllers alerted other pilots in the vicinity.”
The FAA said there were no unusual objects spotted on radar in the area Wednesday evening.
The possible sighting follows a string of similar sightings in late 2020. A video taken in December shows what appears to be a man wearing a jetpack flying over Los Angeles.
According to investigators, the object in the video could be a man-shaped drone.
