USAF Aircraft Airborne Over Montana, Monitoring Suspected Chinese Spy Balloon

Today, the Pentagon confirmed to NBC News that it is currently monitoring a suspected Chinese spy balloon that has been overing over northern areas of the United States for the past few days. The balloon was last spotted over Montana, which is where you can see USAF aircraft airborne in response to it. Currently on FlightRadar24, three USAF Boeing KC-135 Stratotankers are actively circling areas around Chester, which are likely supporting ISR aircraft that have continuously been monitoring the balloon. The US military has been hesitant about shooting it down over the risk it may pose to civilian areas below.
