This one was spotted over Alaska and moved on to Canadian airspace….
The object was moving slowly at alititude….
The ‘object’ (another type ballon?) was intercepted and followed by US and Canadian fighter jets ….
And American F-22 brought the thing down with a missile shot like the one downed on the East Coast a few days ago….
The ‘shoot’ order came from Canadian Prime Minster Trudeau who was in touch with President Biden who oked the use of the American fighter jets actions….the US and Canada work together on the North American Air Defense System….NORAD….
There maybe more spy ballons coming our way…...
An American fighter jet, acting on the orders of President Biden and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada, shot down another unidentified flying object on Saturday, Canadian and American officials said, in the latest installment of the drama playing out in the skies of North America.
“I ordered the take down of an unidentified object that violated Canadian airspace,” Mr. Trudeau said in a statement posted on Twitter. He said an American F-22 with the North American Aerospace Defense Command, which is operated jointly by the United States and Canada, downed the object over the Yukon Territory.
As with the object that Mr. Biden ordered shot down near Alaska on Friday, officials said they had yet to determine just what had been blasted out of the sky over the Yukon, which borders the northernmost U.S. state.
Mr. Trudeau said he had spoken with Mr. Biden on Saturday afternoon. “Canadian Forces will now recover and analyze the wreckage of the object,” he said in his Twitter post.
The White House said in a statement Saturday that Mr. Biden and Mr. Trudeau had “discussed the importance of recovering the object in order to determine more details on its purpose or origin.”
Late Saturday, the Federal Aviation Administration classified an area near Havre, Mont., as “national defense airspace,” closing it to air traffic. The agency used similar terminology a week ago, just before the United States shot down a Chinese spy balloon off the coast of South Carolina. About an hour later, Representative Matt Rosendale, Republican of Montana, posted on Twitter that the airspace had been reopened.
It was unclear whether there might be a third object approaching the Montana border from Canada, U.S. officials said. They added that both Canadian and American authorities were monitoring the situation, but acknowledged that the current heightened awareness could lead to false alarms….
Why did an American F-22 shoot down the ballon OVER CANADA?
Why NOT an Canadian F-18?
