Some may have heard about the first report a month or so ago of someone flying in a jetpack around Los Angeles International Airport, but now a second sighting has been reported. The incident allegedly occurred this past Wednesday (Oct. 14) when a China Airlines crew spotted the figure at an altitude of approximately 6,000 feet at around 1:45 p.m. PST. There are jetpacks currently being developed that can achieve this altitude, but none have been certified for public use. Read more for two videos and additional information.
Jetpack technology dates back to the 1950s when Wendell F. Moore, an engineer who worked for Bell Aerospace at the time, created the “Small Rocket Life Device” that was intended for soldiers to fly into battle using a backpack with engines built into it. Since then, Gravity Industries as well as Jetpack Aviation are the frontrunners to bring this technology to the real world.
