The FBI and the FAA are investigating whether a person carrying a jet aircraft has flown over Los Angeles. The jet was spotted by a pilot of a cargo plane at an altitude of about 1.5 kilometers near LAX International Airport.
The report of the pilot carrying the jet bag came from a pilot who flew a Boeing 747 on Wednesday afternoon, reports say NBC News. As a precaution, air traffic controllers immediately warned other pilots in the area. The jet bag was seen near the busy airport flight path.
This isn’t the first time pilots have reported a jet plane over Los Angeles. In August, two pilots from different flights simultaneously knocked on the door of air traffic control at Los Angeles International Airport. While landing, they saw a man carrying a jet bag in the air. Two months later, a similar report came in on the China Airlines flight.
The FAA takes the reports very seriously. But the US authorities have not yet been able to find an explanation for the reports about the jet pilots. A spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) says it is investigating the matter with the FBI. “As in the past, we are investigating the facts,” the FAA said.
