Jetpack? What jetpack? I don’t see no jetpack.

And I won’t see any jetpack, neither.

For the second time in six weeks, crew members on a commercial airliner flying near Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday found that they were sharing the skies with a person soaring solo over Southern California in a jetpack.


A spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation said the agency “is investigating multiple reports of what, according to witnesses, appeared to be an individual in a jetpack near LAX.” Federal officials said last month that they were investigating the earlier jetpack sighting by two commercial pilots.

Clearly it was a weather balloon, right? Or swamp gas. Or a sighting of Venus. Whatever it was, it wasn’t a guy in a jetpack. Because there’s no guy using a jetpack to fly around SoCal and avoid the Feds. I would have seen it if there had been, right? And since I didn’t see it…
