A former Royal Air Force pilot who flew Harrier jets and then flew hundreds of flights in and out of the United States has an interesting take on the Chinese balloon that has been allowed to fly over sensitive areas in the United States. The pilot who remains unnamed says that Joe Biden must have sanctioned the balloon flight. Either China has something on him or they are paying him off or both. President Trump says he would have shot the balloon down.
The Pentagon has said that the balloon is maneuverable, meaning that it is not floating randomly, but rather is on a course directed by the communist Chinese regime. The pilot says that anything flying in US airspace has to have at a very minimum, a flight plan. It is unlikely that the Pentagon or any other power in the United States other than a president would be willing to allow the balloon to fly over military bases and other high-value targets.
The former RAF pilot shared the following:
At an absolute minimum, an object flying over the United States, a plane or balloon, has to file a flight plan.
In addition, at the absolute minimum, the object (plane or balloon) must have a transponder so that other flying objects know where it is and don’t crash into it.
Because of these two items, the FAA had to know that the China balloon spotted flying over the US was coming.
If the FAA did not know this then it is illegal and as President Trump recommends, it should be removed from US airspace immediately.
The balloon also can legally only fly in certain areas. It needs to be above the commercial airline space of approximately 50,000 feet.
There are lots of areas or zones in the US where a flying object cannot fly. Flying is prohibited over these areas.

Based on the information above, the former pilot tells us that the Chinese balloon flight must have been sanctioned by the Biden regime.
Biden might have done this if the Chinese have information on Biden or if he is being paid off.
The American people have no idea what is on or in the balloon.
What technology is on the balloon and what is being sent back to China? How is the data sent?
This is very similar to the Gary Powers spy plane going down over Russia. It has the same importance. [Powers flew a U-2 spy plane over Russia that was shot down and as a result a major international incident ensued.]
Our pilot friend says:
Biden must have sanctioned it.
These things don’s just drift in.
Someone must have said it was ok to fly over US airspace.
Someone must have sanctioned it.
This is a scary story, because there is much the Chinese can learn about our national security, but also because Joe Biden is very happy to allow them to gather intelligence. But is anyone shocked that Joe Biden would allow this type of behavior by an enemy of this country? No, and that might be the scariest part of this whole story. I would ask whose side Biden is on, but we already know the answer to that.
