Earlier in September, the FBI confirmed that there is an ongoing investigation for a UFM (an unidentified flying man) seen flying thousands of feet in the air above LA.
The mysterious flying man has been the subject of fascination from onlookers, pilots, and authorities alike.
After a few months later, it seems like the UFM has returned. The ‘Jet Pack Guy’ is filmed on camera as he flew across the clouds.
According to the academy’s Instagram post, the guy was caught flying by an instructor with the Sling Pilot Academy, reportedly near Palos Verdes, south of LA, with Catalina Island can be seen in the background.
“The video appears to show a jet pack, but it could also be a drone or some other object,” the post reads.
“If it is a guy in a jet pack then it remains to be seen whether it is a legal test flight (jet packs are real – there is a manufacturer near Los Angeles) or related to the jet pack sightings near LAX recently that caused disruptions to air traffic.
Some people have aired skepticism that it is actually a man, saying it could be a drone designed to look like the Jet Pack Guy.
However, one commenter asked: “My question is. Is it possible for a drone to fly at that altitude and speed?”
Another commenter jokingly said: “Dude how can you see Ironman and not ask him for an autograph?”
A third commented: “That ain’t nothin’ but a Mandalorian!”
The FBI has yet to confirm whether it’s investigating the latest UFM sighting.
