Skydivers jump into Navy nuclear base
The Florida Times-Union reports that the St. Marys Airport Authority voted this week to revoke The Jumping Place's permit to operate from the small airport.
The U.S. Navy briefly held the two skydivers earlier this month after they landed on the Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base. The base is the East Coast hub for the Navy's nuclear missile-armed submarines.
Before the airport board's vote Wednesday, Navy Cmdr. Jeff Pafford told the authority, "This cannot happen again."
The Jumping Place owner Cathy Kloess said she's started looking into areas to relocate her business.
