Fans of Iron Man would be delighted to know that the mysterious “jet pack guy,” who was first spotted in Los Angeles last year, appears to be back.
This week, a Boeing 747 pilot reported seeing the Marvel hero lookalike not far from the Los Angeles International Airport.
According to officials, the object was seen just 15 miles from the airport, and it appeared to be about 5,000 feet above the ground.
“Out of an abundance of caution, air traffic controllers alerted other pilots in the vicinity,” a spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration said.
The elusive “jetpack man” was first seen in September last year, followed by a sighting in October, sparking FAA and FBI investigations.
Some speculate that the object could be a drone that was made to look like a man. The FAA said it will be leading the investigation into what the object could be.
This latest sighting reflects a nationwide trend. More and more Americans report seeing unidentified flying objects, with well over 7,0000 instances logged last year.
