The Royal Canadian Air Force deployed a number of plane on Monday to seek for particles from a mysterious object that was shot down over the Yukon territory, Canadian Protection Minister Anita Anand stated.
North American Aerospace Protection Command (NORAD) first detected the “high-altitude airborne object” over Alaska on Friday night and scrambled fighter jets to “characterize the character of the item.”
A U.S. F-22 Raptor shot the item down on Saturday utilizing an AIM 9X missile after a dialog between President Biden and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Particles from the item, which Anand stated was “cylindrical,” are believed to be in a distant location northeast of Dawson Metropolis, a small city about 40 miles east of Canada’s border with Alaska.
A CC-130H Hercules, CH-148 Cyclone, CH-149 Cormorant plane, and two CC-138 Twin Otters are scouring “advanced alpine terrain that’s susceptible to difficult northern climate circumstances,” Anand stated on Monday.
