Welcome to the Forum, WB! I think you'll find many like-minded people here.

What do you think about the 10 mm cartridge?

I also wondered why an F 22 would be needed. The lowest tech airplane the USAF has would be sufficient.


I thought the same thing but a pilot friend pointed out that the balloon is at 60,000 feet and not many planes fly that high. Maybe they wanted to get some Polaroids.

The balloon was over 60k ft, the F-22 can operate over 60k+ ft and they were available since Nellis is running a Red Flag exercise. Why the fighters out of Hill or, Mountain Home couldn't do the intercept...no idea, perhaps there's some sensor capability the -22 has that the other 3 fighters in the inventory don't have.

Pathetic that the Administration and our military cannot take down a "weather" balloon ASAP. What if there was an early warning (EW) of incoming ballistic missiles--dithering over what is an "appropriate" response?

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

Hello “I am Weather Balloon” and welcome to the forum.

I have 2 questions for you.
1. Do you have a Facebook, instagram, twitter, TikTok, YouTube account that we can follow?
Maybe you can share a livestream too?

2. How did you get a CUT on your first post?
Enquiring minds want to know.

Weather control. The .gov is contracting out the chemtrailing to the Chinese.


Chinese Chemtrails? My Alex Jones air filter has been protecting me from my .gov, but who do I buy my grossly overpriced Sharper Image knock off air filter to protect me and my family from the Chi-Com's chemtrails???

The Chinese are tracking caribou migrations.

What is this about "parking" a balloon over Canada. In my understanding of balloons, they do not park. They go where they are blown.



They can control it's altitude and place it in different prevailing winds, steering it.
I hunt tail winds when I fly, as do passenger liners ask for best altitudes.


From what I read, it's has a helium supply and release valve.

You can also listen to the English version on page 2.

(Somehow I thought that version more appropriate, as being from China, you know, like, "red".)
