BREAKING: U.S. Closes Airspace Over Section of Lake Michigan


The U.S. has closed airspace over parts of Lake Michigan.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) declared “national defense airspace.”

Per Fox News:

The Federal Aviation Administration has declared a “national defense airspace” over part of Lake Michigan, the organization announced Sunday.

The FAA has not clarified why it has banned civilian air traffic from the area. The FAA last established a national defense airspace over Montana this weekend in reaction to an unidentified flying object.

NORCOM has reportedly confirmed an “unknown object” in the area near Lake Michigan.

Fighter jets are reportedly in transit to the scene.

“I am in constant communication with NORCOM and they have just advised me that they have confidence there IS an object and it WAS NOT an anomaly. I am waiting now to receive visual confirmation. Our nation’s security is my priority,” said Rep. Matt Rosendale (R-MT).

Could the latest airspace closure be related to the closure in Montana Saturday evening?

Billings Beat reported:

A short time later he updated his statement, “Airspace is reopened – I will remain in contact with defense officials and share more information as it becomes available. Montanans deserve answers.”

Rep. Rosendale is pushing for answers about the first Chinese Spy balloon. “Can the Biden Admin please explain why they shot down two relatively small “objects” over Alaskan and Canadian airspace this week, but allowed a known Chinese Spy balloon to collect and transmit data about our country for a week before it was brought down?”

Montana airspace was ordered closed near Havre Saturday night for what is now being called a “radar anomaly” by the FAA.
