Two commercial pilots approaching LAX reported a man flying around on a jet pack and now the F.B.I. is looking into it…

“We just passed a guy in a jet pack,” the pilot of American Airlines Flight 1997 from Philadelphia told air traffic control, about 6:35 p.m. Sunday.

“Were they off to your left side or right side?” the controller asked. The pilot said the person was 300 yards to the plane’s left, and about 30 seconds later, another pilot said he had also seen the man pass by. The controller, after asking the pilot of JetBlue Flight 23 to keep a lookout, added, “Only in L.A.”

Now both the F.B.I. and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating.
