Breaking: Pentagon Shoots Down New ‘Threat’ in US Airspace

Published on

White House officials said that the Pentagon shot down an unidentified flying object in U.S. airspace off the coast of Alaska on Friday.

The item was flying at around 41,000 feet and constituted a “reasonable threat” to the safety of civilian planes, according to John Kirby, spokesperson for the White House National Security Council.

President Joe Biden ordered the military to shoot down the object, which was characterized as being around the size of a compact vehicle, according to Kirby. No other information on its nature was immediately supplied.

The item landed on freezing American seas. Kirby stated that “fighter aircraft” downed the aircraft.

Saturday, the United States fired down a suspected Chinese surveillance balloon. Off the coast of South Carolina, officials are still retrieving wreckage from the object that was shot down.
