    Thought this was kinda strange:


    The first report came from a pilot on American Airlines flight 1997, which was approaching the airport on Sunday evening.

    "Tower, American 1997. We just passed a guy in a jetpack," the pilot reported.

    "OK, thank you," the air traffic controller replied. "Were they off to your left side or right side?"

    "Off to the left side, maybe 300 yards or so, about our altitude," the pilot said.

    A SkyWest Airlines pilot chimed in to corroborate the claim a few seconds later.

    "We just saw the guy passing by us in the jetpack," he told the tower.

    Wait till they start using these to commit crimes. Police are going to have a rough time chasing them.

    Pales in comparison to the legend Lawnchair Larry.

    "On July 2, 1982, Larry Walters (April 19, 1949 – October 6, 1993) made a 45-minute flight in a homemade airship made of an ordinary patio chair and 45 helium-filled weather balloons. The lawnchair rose to an altitude of over 15,000 feet. Walters attached 43 of the balloons to his lawn chair, filled them with helium, put on a parachute, and strapped himself into the chair in the backyard of a home at 1633 West 7th Street in San Pedro. He took his pellet gun, a CB radio, sandwiches, beer, and a camera. "
