Los Angeles pilot finally captures elusive ‘jetpack man’ on video

The unidentified flying man in Los Angeles has finally been caught on video – soaring 3,000 feet above Palos Verdes near Catalina Island with a jetpack.

The mystery aeronaut has been spotted at least twice before, in the summer and fall, but now there’s video, posted to the Instagram account of the Sling Pilot Academy, a local aviation school.

The video, which the school said one of its flight instructors recorded Monday, appears to show a solitary man sailing through the sky above the water off the California coast.

Although the figure does look like a person in some kind of suit, the school said it wasn’t 100% certain that the flyer was indeed the mystery sky intruder.

“The video appears to show a jet pack, but it could also be a drone or some other object,” the school admitted. “If it is a ‘guy in a jet pack’ then it remains to be seen whether it is a legal test flight (jet packs are real – there is a manufacturer near Los Angeles) or related to the jet pack sightings near LAX recently that caused disruptions to air traffic.” Via – Fox News
