US crane ship retrieves huge section of Chinese spy craft from Atlantic

The U.S. Navy and Coast Guard retrieved a large, 30-foot section of China’s surveillance craft shot down over the Atlantic on Friday. The U.S. removed the large section of the payload with a crane ship on Friday, removing important electronics and sensors for analysis. Separate from the China craft, a senior U.S. defense official tells Fox News Digital that investigators have found “similarities” among the three other “objects” shot down over the weekend, but they have yet to draw any conclusions. “Across all of the objects over the weekend, there are certain similarities in terms of characteristics or size but they are all unique and different in their own way,” the official said, adding that investigators are trying not to rely on reports from the pilots who shot down the objects. “When we start to call it something we stop looking for other things,” the official added.

Only the first is known to be of Chinese origin, however. U.S. and Canadian authorities are working to recover the three other objects that were shot down, one over Alaska, another over Canada, and a third over Lake Huron. The official warned that those recovery efforts are likely to be measured in weeks, not hours. CHINESE SPY CRAFT PAYLOAD LOCATED OFF WATERS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, MOSTLY INTACT: US OFFICIAL National Security Council spokesman John Kirby shot down the popular theory that the “objects” had an extra-terrestrial origin during a White House press briefing Monday. He told reporters that there is no reason for Americans to be concerned about aliens, despite NORAD chief Gen. Glen VanHerck saying he wasn’t taking anything off the table. “I don’t think the American people need to be worried about aliens. Period,” Kirby said during the briefing.
