Airline pilots report 'guy with jetpack' at 3,000ft

Who is the mystery Rocketeer ? Image Credit: CC BY 2.0 Ostersund Photography
Two pilots spotted the real-life Rocketeer while coming in to land at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday.
A man flying a jetpack is just about the last thing any airline pilot would expect to see, especially while approaching the busy airpspace above a major international airport.

This was the sight that met the pilots of American Flight 1997 at the weekend, however, with both describing what they believed to be a "guy in a jetpack" 300 yards off their wing.

The sighting was particularly unusual because they were still 3,000ft in the air at the time and there are very few jetpacks actually capable of propelling someone at such an altitude.
The fact that the culprit was flying around above a major airport makes it even more bizarre.

Yves Rossy's experimental winged jetpack may be capable of such a feat, however his past flights have all been high-profile affairs carried out in remote areas.

So who could be flying around by themselves above Los Angeles International Airport ?

The search for answers continues.

It could be a harmless prank or it could be preview of a future criminal act against an airplane.  Government agents are checking this out since this was very illegal.

If indeed these airline pilots saw a person flying with a Jetpack especially near the wing, you would think even the passengers would of witnessed it or even cased a commotion to take notice. Either 1. They are making it up to get a few minutes of recognition or 2. They misidentified whatever object it could of been.
