Now it's happened again....

An unidentified man was seen flying in a jetpack near the Los Angeles International Airport ... again.

The man was spotted by a flight crew around 1:45 p.m. Wednesday, the Federal Aviation Administration confirmed to CNN.
"A China Airlines crew reported seeing what appeared to be someone in a jet pack at an approximate altitude of 6,000 feet, about seven miles northwest of Los Angeles International Airport," the FAA said in a statement.

Aside from the thing most likely being really noisy, you would think his take off and landing would have attracted attention from neighbors or passerby's. Hard to believe in this day and age no one got a cell phone video of it.

Guy, or gal, has got guts. 6000 feet, if something goes wrong, it's definitely all over for him or her.
What's the point of an open door policy if inside the open door sits a closed mind?

I would assume they have a parachute if things go wrong. Doubt the inflight catering is up to much. LOL

Someone, somewhere, suggested that this might be a half-way convincing model flown by an idiot of the ground-bound variety.

Sausages and marshmallows...
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast:
For it is the number of a man; and its number is One hundred threescore and twelve.

With all the cancelled gigs it was inevitable Elton John would get bored...
