Smoke is pink. It鈥檚 a girl!!!
Veja o exato momento em que o bal茫o chin锚s foi alvejado pela For莽a A茅rea dos EUA.
Eu ainda acho que isso 茅 daqueles bal玫es de ch谩 de revela莽茫o
I also want to point out the weapon used to destroy that thing costs about 400k

Telling that they would use a missile to shoot it down. If they recovered the equipment intact it would prove it鈥檚 a weather balloon and not a 鈥渟py balloon鈥 as they claimed.
In reply to @rawsalerts
Couple of questions: 1- Why they did not do this at first on empty land....? waiting to data get transferred? 2- Why they did not bring it down instead shooting it, to see what info is collected? 3- F22 and 400-grand fox-2 missile for a balloon? They could have gun it with F16/15

I appreciate that @POTUS and the Department of Defense coolly waited until the balloon was above water. They put no Americans at risk due to falling metal. Nice to have cool-headed leadership in charge.

It's a fucking WEATHER balloon.

USA! USA! USA! Beat the balloon! Great! Ok, now, let's talk about compensation. You know, it's a civil weather balloon... 馃槀

Why wait to take this spy ballon down after it as traversed across the country collecting data? Should have been taken out the minute it entered our airspace in Montana.
That's the big huge mess it made and why they couldn't do it over rural farm land ...

So they didn鈥檛 pop the balloon so they could recover the electronics.

They obliterated the electronics AFTER it scanned the country and transmitted the data.

This is a very big deal.
Too little, too late. Damage was already done.

Talk about precision! Cut the guy wire. Instrument package still all in one piece. Small footprint when it hits the water Easy recovery. Brilliant!

I recall a few threads going around by armchair military about how high-altitude balloons like this are actually super hard to shoot down and thus they're going to be the future of military reconnaissance and change everything (etc etc)

Blew up like all the Congressional Republicans complains and purposed hearings. On the National Security disaster concerning the Chinese Spy balloon. That won鈥檛 be happening anytime soon. Oops! It crashed In front of Trump tower. That鈥檚 one hideous Chinese balloon. I pic.twitter.com/XzYMJPULRt
The Chinese Spy Balloon's mission was accomplished BEFORE they shot it down. Let thar sink in.

Looks to me like the missile hit the payload.
In reply to @rawsalerts
Perhaps a dumb question, but how did anyone know that it was Chinese?

Guess the reconnaissance mission is over. Time to dispose of the evidence.

2/12 The Chinese balloon... All I could think was how strange it is, the metaphors that arise in "reality" if this isn't a simulation of some kind. Just when it seems all market reversal sirens are blaring, a big bubble pops in the sky, for all to see? twitter.com/rawsalerts/sta鈥
They were worried about doing this over MT ? Riiiiight.
Highest res video I鈥檝e seen but would benefit from stabilization. Payload looked fairly intact as it started to fall.
In reply to @rawsalerts
What if that was some kind of disease dust that flew out
So disappointing.

They could have just hit it with a huge stick.

Now we'll never get any of the candy.
In reply to @rawsalerts
Pretty cool how the missile hit directly at the payload to destroy it instead of the ballon itself to save vital information.

The gov pretty good at distracting people from what's really going on.
Unless there's been a covert op that they've kept quiet, I believe this is the first hostile kill recorded by an F-22.

Suffice to say, stealth, sensor fusion, supercruise and thrust vectoring were, ah, not significant factors in the intercept.

In reply to @rawsalerts
How do they know there was nothing in it?

Hoorah! Down goes the Chinese Communist spyloon. #ChineseSpyBalloon
Though amazing footage getting rid of a Chinese spy balloon after crossing the entire US is like locking the doors after a burglers rummaged through your house.
look, I'm just a dumb man and I don't know anything about military stuff but

they used a fucking missile to pop a balloon?
