The man was discovered by a flight crew around 1:45 p.m. on Wednesday, the Federal Aviation Administration confirmed to CNN.
“A crew from China Airlines reported seeing someone in a jetpack at an altitude of approximately 6,000 feet, about seven miles northwest of Los Angeles International Airport,” the FAA said in a statement.
The FAA said it has alerted local law enforcement agencies and is investigating the report.
An American Airlines flight was the first to report a “man in a jetpack”
The FBI previously confirmed that it is investigating this particular incident.
CNN has approached the FBI for comment on the ongoing investigation and LAX. There are currently no additional details.
CNN got the tone between air traffic control and the American and JetBlue flight crews from the September 1 incident. According to the announcement, air traffic control warned a JetBlue flight “to exercise caution … person on a jetpack who was reported 300 meters south”.
After the aircraft confirmed the instruction, the air traffic controller concluded with, “LA only.”
