Canceled flights – Fly yourself!
Sep 1, 2020
When a plane landed on LAX in Los Angeles, the pilot looked surprised from the cockpit at 3000 m altitude and saw a man flying around in a jetpack. Unfortunately, no one knows who was having fun at such high altitudes. It was not just one pilot who saw this flying man with his jetpack but 2 pilots in two different planes. Below is a transcript of what was said between the pilots and the traffic manager:
“Tower, American 1997. We just passed a guy in a jet pack,” the American Airlines pilot reports to the control tower.
The tower operator, who at first sounds surprised by what he heard, asks the pilot whether the person in the jet pack is on the right or left side of the plane.
“Off the left side, at maybe… 300 yards or so, about our altitude,” the pilot responds.
Moments later, a Southwest Airlines pilot contacts air traffic control to make a similar report.
“We just saw the guy pass by us in a jet pack,” the pilot says in the recording.
After the jet pack is spotted a second time at an altitude of about 3,000 feet and 300 yards south of the airport, the tower contacts the pilot of a third flight – in a JetBlue plane that is approaching LAX – to alert him to the strange sighting .
“We heard and we are definitely looking,” the JetBlue pilot responds.
“Only in L.A.,” the air traffic controller responds. ”
