The pilot of the American Airlines said that he saw a man with a jetpack flying past the plane, reports Fox 11.
The pilot reported the incident to the dispatcher while landing at Los Angeles airport. At the time of approaching the plane was at an altitude of 914 m.
“We just flew a guy with a jet pack… to our left, maybe 300 yards (274 m. – Ed.) from us, about our altitude,” it says in a recording published by the TV channel.
Later, the same message to the dispatchers came from the pilot, presumably Sky West airline.
According to the channel, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is aware of what is happening, which has engaged in determining all the circumstances of the incident.
In June 2019 it was reported that the British inventors from the company Gravity Industries tested jet-packs in urban conditions.
