The U.S. has been making headlines this Saturday, as reports of a Chinese surveillance balloon off the Carolina coast surfaced. In response to the news, President Joe Biden declared that “We’re gonna take care of it.” The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) paused departures and arrivals at three local airports due to “a national security effort”, and now, the U.S. is attempting to recover the debris of the balloon.
The balloon, which was spotted by residents in North Carolina and South Carolina, is believed to have been launched by China. The U.S. is now taking steps to ensure that its airspace remains secure and safe. The FAA has paused departures and arrivals at Wilmington (ILM), Myrtle Beach International (MYR) and Charleston International (CHS) airports to support the Department of Defense in a national security effort.
It is unclear what the U.S. will do with the debris of the balloon, but it is clear that the U.S. is taking the matter seriously. The President’s statement and the FAA’s efforts suggest that the U.S. is taking steps to ensure that its airspace remains secure and free from foreign surveillance.
This is a developing story, and more details will be revealed as the U.S. continues its investigation into the matter. It is important to note that the U.S. is taking the necessary steps to protect its airspace and the safety of its citizens.
Stay tuned for more updates on the U.S.’s efforts to secure its airspace against foreign surveillance.
