Chinese Spy Balloon: China’s spy balloon seen in the sky of America, created a stir, fighter aircraft like F-22 ready

Washington: The US is tracking a suspected Chinese spy balloon that has been seen flying over some sensitive areas in recent days. Defense officials say that they are quite sure that the spy balloon flying in the sky is from China. It was recently seen in the western state of Montana. However, military officials are not in favor of shooting it down as they are worried about the danger of falling debris. China has not commented on the whole matter at the moment. US President Joe Biden has issued a statement on the situation.

Officials said the balloon was seen in the skies over Alaska’s Aleutian Islands and Canada before it was spotted over the city of Billings in Montana, the BBC reported. A senior defense official told that if the order to shoot it down is issued by the White House, then the government has prepared fighter jets like F-22 for that situation. Top military officials such as Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and General Mark Milley met on Wednesday to assess the threat.
