THE FBI are now hunting a mystery man who was ‘seen flying a JET PACK’ at 3,000ft over LAX airport.

An American Airlines pilot reportedly saw the man flying past the plane when it was 10 miles out from landing at Los Angeles International Airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration said two airline flight crews reported seeing what “appeared to be someone in a jetpack as they were on their final approaches to LAX around 6:35 p.m. PDT Sunday.”

The pilot said the flyer was “about 300 yards” from the plane as it prepared for landing.

A second pilot flying for JetBlue also reported seeing a man in a jetpack fly past, according to The Hill.

Despite the reports of the jetpack flyer in the skies around the Los Angeles airport, there were no in-air collisions.

As of Wednesday morning, there were also no reports of injuries.

JET PACK FLIGHT

No one has come forward to take credit for the stunt either.

Jetpacks have been able to reach the heights described by the pilots in the past.

In February, a man wore a jetpack created by Jetman Dubai and reached an altitude of nearly 6,000 feet, according to Newsweek.

The peculiar thing about this jetpack sighting is that a mystery flyer would choose to go up in the path of planes arriving at LAX, putting himself at risk of collision.

Aviation expert Steve Cowell told KTTV that he believes the pilots’ claims of what they saw.

“There’s no question in my mind that American pilot was very definitive about what he saw out his window,” he said.


“Even the most technologically advanced jetpacks can only fly briefly.

“So it’s possible that this person may have gone up and may have come down and then driven away,” he added.
