For those who have been worried about the Chinese using TikTok to spy on you, it gets worse and now reaches into our own back yard. A Chinese Spy Balloon is now crossing over Clay County and the president has yet to order it shot down. Personally, I don't care who spies on me, but by God, it better be an American like Bill Gates Mark Zuckerberg or Jeff Bezos. No Chink's for thank you very much. CNN reports:
Pilots flying at high altitudes have spotted the suspected Chinese spy balloon as it drifts over the central United States.
“Derelict balloon adrift,” noted the crew of a Cessna Citation private jet in a weather report, which came into the Federal Aviation Administration around 11:30 a.m. ET.
The pilot of the flight, which was at 43,000 feet, said the balloon was 20 miles north of Kansas City International Airport at about 50,000 feet. The publicly-available pilot weather observation is known as a Pilot Report or PIREP.
A source familiar with the situation tells CNN that other pilots are reporting seeing the balloon to air traffic controllers.
