There was a photo of a Chinese balloon from the cockpit of a US military aircraft.

A photo from the cockpit, which shows a US Air Force U-2 pilot in front of a Chinese balloon flying over American territory was published.

The Pentagon has confirmed that the pilot’s selfie is real.

“I can confirm the authenticity of the photo,” Sabrina Singh, deputy spokeswoman for the agency, said during a briefing.


After the first incident with the Chinese balloon, US troops destroyed three more objects flying over the territory of North America. It is believed that these objects were not Chinese and did not pose a threat to national security.

President Joe Biden has been criticized by Republicans for the administration’s handling of the Chinese balloon incident, including waiting for it to fly over water before destroying it.
