Military Surveillance Blimp Finally Lands in Pennsylvania
A blimp associated with NORAD’s surveillance of the East Coast that became untethered from its mooring in Maryland is now on the ground and authorities have it secured, Pennsylvania State Police told CNN.
According to NORAD, the blimp “is mostly deflated and located in the vicinity of Moreland Township, Pennsylvania. Local authorities are securing the area and there is a military recovery team en route.”
The loose JLENS blimp had been in the air over Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, and caused power outages before it came down, Columbia County Department of Public Safety Director Fred Hunsinger said.
The military took no kinetic action to bring it to the ground, according to the Pentagon, though there is no further information at this point about how it came down.
