An airline pilot reportedly sighted a mysterious individual flying a jetpack near LAX on Thursday afternoon.
The 'jetpack man' mystery first came to light back in 2020 when pilots reported witnessing what appeared to be a person flying a portable jetpack device near Los Angeles International Airport.
The mysterious figure was observed several times, sometimes at altitudes of 3,000ft and on one occasion a mere 300ft off the wing of one of the airliners.
The presence of something of this nature, especially at such a height and within the vicinity of a major international airport, sparked a great deal of debate at the time, however no explanation for the sighting was ever found and nobody came forward to identify themselves as the culprit.
Now - two years on - it looks as though the mystery is back in the spotlight after yet another sighting of an alleged figure flying a jetpack was reported by a flight near LAX at 2:45 p.m on Thursday.
"We heard that the jetpack man is back," air traffic control was reported as saying.
"I have a report of a jetpack 4,500 feet over a gate in the section, which is about six miles east of your present position right here."
As things stand, it remains unclear whether or not the anomalous object actually was a man flying a jetpack, however if this turns out to be the case then it would be consistent with the other sightings from back in 2020.
A formal investigation was previously carried out, however nobody was ever caught or charged.
If there really is a man with a jetpack flying around near LAX, his identity remains a total mystery.
