Los Angeles pilot finally captured elusive 'jetpack man' on video

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

The mystery guy 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.

14. Because if anything goes wrong, he'll bring down a plane & hundreds will die....

Airspace is restricted for a reason.

California fire fighters have also had privately owned drones interfere with helicopters and water-dropping tankers. They’ve had to land their craft and lose a lot of precious time.

3. palos verdes

near Catalina? weird way to put it. Catalina is an island off the coast, according to the song, 26 miles away.

17. Well, if you look at the video....

And read other pilot reports of other incidents, it can be nothing else but a human being wearing a propulsion device. And since there appears to nothing in the area of the feet, like a flyboard, it has to be a backpack device.

18. I'll bet it's a drone.

They make turbojet engines for model airplanes that work just like the full scale ones. If someone were to make a lightweight half scale model of a person with a jet pack, it would fool anyone at a distance. unlike a real one, it would have an extended range.
