Podcast: Whatever happened to the jet pack man?

written by Robyn Tongol | October 20, 2020

Note: This may, or may not, be the ‘jetpack man’ spotted over LAX

Last month, World of Aviation reported on multiple flight crews recording the unique sight of a man in a jet pack flying alongside their aircraft on approach to LAX.

This week, host Adam Thorn and regular guest Christian “Boo” Boucousis speculate just what might have happened to him as new sightings emerge.

It doesn’t take long, though, for the team to meander off onto drones, flying cars and why anyone would go for a meal on a grounded A380. In economy.

Finally, as countries tentatively begin to open to each other, Adam and Boo discuss the challenges for aviation in a, hopefully, just pre-vaccine world.
