A U.S. military jet shot down another unidentified airborne object, this time over Canada, on Saturday on orders of President Biden and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
“Out of an abundance of caution and at the recommendation of their militaries, President Biden and Prime Minister Trudeau authorized it to be taken down,” according to a statement from the U.S. National Security Council. “President Biden authorized U.S. fighter aircraft…to conduct the operation and a U.S. F-22 shot down the object in Canadian territory in close coordination with Canadian authorities.”
Later Saturday, the Federal Aviation Administration said it had closed airspace near Havre, Mont., for a period to support unspecified Pentagon activities. Military tankers were operating in the area, according to flight-tracking services. The FAA later reopened the airspace.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command, or Norad, said in a statement Saturday night that it had detected a radar anomaly and sent jet fighters to the area, but didn’t find any object that related to what had been seen on radar.
