NextImg:U.S. jet downed unidentified object over Canada, Trudeau says

An American fighter jet shot down an unidentified object detected violating Canadian airspace on Saturday.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he ordered the mission after consulting with President Joe Biden.

“I ordered the take down of an unidentified object that violated Canadian airspace,” Trudeau tweeted. “@NORADCommand shot down the object over the Yukon. Canadian and U.S. aircraft were scrambled, and a U.S. F-22 successfully fired at the object.”

“I spoke with President Biden this afternoon. Canadian Forces will now recover and analyze the wreckage of the object. Thank you to NORAD for keeping the watch over North America,” Trudeau added.

After the North American Aerospace Defense Command first discovered the object, Canadian and U.S. jets intercepted it, and a U.S. F-22 — for the third time this week — shot it down over the Yukon.

The latest incident comes a day after another F-22 downed an unidentified cylindrical object over Alaska airspace, which is currently being recovered by the U.S. military near the Alaskan town of Deadhorse.
