US Air Force Scrambles to Send Three Planes to Confront Chinese Spy Balloon Over Montana

On Thursday, a Chinese spy balloon was spotted over Montana.

“US detects suspected Chinese surveillance balloon hovering over northern U.S. for days,” reported Upward News.

The Pentagon released the following statement: “The United States government has detected and is tracking a high-altitude surveillance balloon that is over the continental United States right now.”

“The balloon was spotted over Billings, Montana, on Wednesday. A senior defense official says the balloon is still over the U.S. but declined to say where it is now,” NBC reported. The spy balloon is the size of three school buses.

Shortly after the revelation was made, the U.S. Air Force scrambled to send three planes to confront the Chinese spy balloon.

“Three US air force planes circling over northern Montana where the Pentagon has found a massive Chinese spy balloon,” Upward News reported.

Shooting down the spy balloon is a possibility however it seems like this will be an unlikely solution at the moment.
