FBI Investigates ‘Iron Man’ at LAX

The FBI is now investigating a man with a jetpack who was spotted by pilots in Los Angeles. People are now wondering if some of Tony Stark’s Iron Man tech is actually real. An American Airlines flight was first to radio the control tower noting that they saw a “guy in a jetpack” at 3,000 feet above Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday (August 31st). It is believed that the man was about 30 yards from the plane.

Another plane also spotted the mysterious man with the jetpack shortly after the American Airlines pilot called it in. “We just saw the guy fly by us on the jetpack,” the crew told the traffic controller. Other flights were warned to be cautious of the man with the jetpack who was close to their altitude and dangerously close to previous flights. The FBI is now looking into the matter to figure who this person is and where they got the Iron Man technology to get that high in the air.

The FBI is now “working to determine what occurred,” on Sunday evening. The Federal Aviation Administration also confirmed receiving news of the man with a jetpack over LAX. “Two airline flight crews reported seeing what appeared to be someone in a jetpack as they were on their final approach to LAX around 6:35 p.m. Sunday,” spokesman Ian Gregor said. “The FAA alerted local law enforcement to the reports and is looking into these reports.” So far, it is a mystery as to how a man in a jetpack was able to get that close to LAX without being detected.
