FBI proposes working theory of jetpack flight in Los Angeles

FBI Solved Mysterious Jetpack Case?

Multiple sightings of what some said looked like a man flying a jetpack in the skies over Los Angeles sparked a federal investigation.

Authorities released some details of the investigation this week.

“The FBI worked closely with the FAA to investigate reports of jetpack sightings in the Los Angeles area, none of which have been confirmed,” the FBI said in a statement. “One working theory is that the pilots could see the balloons.”

Laura Aimiller, a spokeswoman for the FBI, said that so far, agents have not been able to accurately confirm what the pilots said they saw.

The first sighting occurred on August 30, when an American Airlines pilot broadcast an incredible message on the radio. “Tower, American 1997. We’ve just passed jetpack guy– said the pilot. A few minutes later, another message came, this time from a pilot approaching Los Angeles on a Jet Blue airliner: “We just saw a guy pass us in a jetpack.”

Then, in October, a China Airlines pilot approaching Los Angeles reported seeing a jetpack flying at 6,000 feet.

In December 2020, a popular video on social media showed a man with a jetpack flying off the coast of Palos Verdes at an altitude of about 3,000 feet.

There are few jetpacks in the world, and experts have said they doubt it is indeed a person flying around the Los Angeles Basin. First, the altitude reported by the pilots will be difficult to maintain with the jetpack’s fuel supply.

Witnesses interviewed by The Times claimed to have seen a human-shaped object that quickly changed direction rather than just hovering.

Some experts speculate that the “jetpack man” is actually a dummy or balloon attached to a drone to resemble a person with a jetpack. This model has been developed by some European drone enthusiasts.
