The mysterious case of an individual spotted flying a jetpack near Los Angeles International Airport has deepened considerably following a second sighting of an unidentified flying person in the sky over LAX. The latest incident reportedly occurred on Wednesday afternoon when the crew aboard a China Airlines flight observed the aerial interloper. According to a statement released by the FAA, the witnesses saw "someone in a jet pack at an approximate altitude of 6,000 feet, about seven miles northwest of Los Angeles International Airport."

A clip of the conversation between the crew and the air traffic control tower indicated those tasked with keeping an eye on the skies were just as puzzled by the sighting as the people aboard the airliner after hearing that they had seen "a flying object like a flight suit." The person receiving the report responds by asking, "flying object? Was it a UAV or or was it a jet pack?" The air traffic controller subsequently contacted a different plane nearby about "a jet pack reported about seven miles west of you" and asked them to investigate the situation if they could.
