Pilot landing at airport reports ‘Guy on a jetpack’ flying near plane

This isn’t something one expects to see when landing a plane—or anywhere, really!  A pilot landing an American Airlines jet at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) made a bizarre report Sunday night, August 30th…

He called air traffic control to report a man wearing a jetpack flying near the plane. The jet was flying at 3,000 feet at the time of the encounter. The tower then warned other approaching flights to be on the lookout for the man in the jetpack. The incident remains under investigation.
