Joe Biden’s military action against China’s balloon is the first (presumably) hostile aircraft shot down by the US Military within the United States of America since the US Air Force shot down eleven Japanese planes during Japan’s attack on U.S. Army and Navy installations at Dutch Harbor on Alaska’s Amaknak Island on June 3rd and 4th, 1942. That was over 71 years ago.
