Ummm… is Iron Man real?
In September, an American Airlines crew and a JetBlue crew flying at around 3000ft / 914m near Los Angeles both spotted a man flying on a jet pack. He was pretty close to one of the planes. The American Airlines flight called air traffic control and reported “We just passed a guy on a jetpack. Off the left side maybe 300 — 30 yards or so. About our altitude.”
Now, ANOTHER spotting. This time the report comes from a China Airlines crew, again near LAX. They reported seeing a person wearing a jetpack at an altitude of over 1.8km!
The FBI is investigating all the incidents.
After the first two incidents, experts said they doubted it was someone in a jet pack as a jetpack would be too big and noisy.
The image above is of someone demonstrating the Martin Jetpack. We don’t know what the jetpack-using man in question looked like or what kind of jetpack he was using.
