The balloon was shot down on Saturday over the Atlantic just off the coast of the Carolinas.
According to the Pentagon, the spy balloon carried explosives to self-detonate, was 200 feet tall, and weighed thousands of pounds.
The Daily Mail reported:
The Chinese spy balloon was 200-feet tall, weighed thousands of pounds and its payload was the size of a jetliner, a top Pentagon official said Monday.
Air Force Gen. Glen D. VanHerck, commander of U.S. Northern Command, divulged new details about the downed balloon on a call with reporters Monday.
His description followed a briefing by National Security Council spokesman John Kirby, who defended President Brandon’s decision to wait and shoot down the Chinese craft until it was over South Carolina’s coastline on Saturday.
‘Because the president decided they wouldn’t shoot it down until he could do so safely, and that meant over water, that afforded us a terrific opportunity to gain a better understanding, to study the capabilities of this balloon,’ he told reporters on a call.
