      @David Gilbert thanks David for the reply. I do get the safety factor. But we can fuel F 22 raptor in the sky at 35,000 feet. I do believe we should be able to get something up there to tug it over Nevada or Kansas and slowly let it down. And maybe we are jamming the communications, or we are studying it. Could be, we are getting more information out of it than it is giving the Chinese. I think the common thread on most of the comments here are related to the feeling. It would just be nice to feel like our government is in control of something as of late instead of reacting. Wouldn’t it have been cool to get up in the morning and read, US military discovers Chinese balloon, entering our airspace. It’s now in Nevada being studied by the Air Force. Sorry this is so long my friend. Enjoy your weekend.

      @Caleb Flaharty that is a fun fact for sure. We are extremely lucky the US had Nuclear capability before anyone else. And we used them at an appropriate time in a strategic way.

    • NWpilot07

      @MrAce I *assume* it doesn’t pose a threat by way of common sense. A balloon of that size at that altitude is incapable of carrying ordinance, wouldn’t be able to drop any chemicals of consequence, and is so high up that the best it could do is try and get photo imagery of the terrain. Since high definition imagery of the US is already attainable to anyone and also to satellites, it really doesn’t pose a threat. That’s likely the conclusion our military came to as well. It poses more threat as a a large piece of flaming falling debris than it does a redundant floating camera

    • NWpilot07
      NWpilot07 Tháng trước

      @robert harrison Sattelites are actually pretty easy to reposition, for example during the filming of Top Gun Maverick the Chinese reoriented a satellite to get a better image of the prop Mach 10 jet used in the film because they thought it was a real thing. A balloon on the other hand is completely uncontrollable at that altitude, it needs to be so light that any control or propulsion mechanism would weigh it down

      The air force can't afford to fail to find a balloon.

    It's a way that the Chinese can monitor our communications about threatening craft in our territory. They not monitoring just from the balloon but from the internet and probably deep sea submarine cables. They will know what channels we use to talk about something like this. It's to feel out the process of what and how it happens. It's all about information gathering from several different ways.

    The only issue is the potential for the balloon to carry a biological hazard. Anthrax spores for example. This could be a major reason why it hasn't been shot down. Of course they wouldn't admit that publicly, as to not stir public fear. One only need to watch the music video of Metallica's "All Nightmare Long"

    If only they can have a short burst emp to stop any signals.
    Or Send a drone to some how guide it to wherever they want or two detect signal and see what they can do with it?

    It is weather warfare data collection allowing China better information for crunching its computer models and for calculating ongoing adjustments of its upstream weather warfare interventions over Siberia, the Arctic and the North Pacific. The ballon is monitoring an atmospheric way station to report where the arctic air they are sending through Montana are headed.

    Technically, they don't have to shoot it down they can hit it with a paint gun, and it will change direction. Now, seriously, we should tow it to a secluded area, force it down, and investigate the craft.

    The Airforce should have used a 30mm cannon to shoot the balloon down instead of a middle. The balloon would have made a controlled descent and remained in tact. That missle probably cost 100,000 dollars.cI don't know what a 30mm cannon round cost. But I'm sure someone will tell me .
