Off-course skydivers land on high-security military base
Two skydivers landed on a high-security submarine base in Georgia Sunday. The military is investigating.
Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base, Ga. — The military is investigating after two skydivers missed an airport and landed on a high-security submarine base along Georgia's coast.
Cathy Kloess, who owns a skydiving business at the nearby St. Marys Airport, tells The Florida Times-Union that the skydivers landed on a baseball diamond on base.
Kloess said the Navy doesn't want skydivers landing on the base, but Navy officials were understanding after an "act of God" like the strong winds that blew the skydivers off-course.
Base security officers released the jumpers after verifying their identities.
Officials say it's at least the third time in three years that skydivers missed the airport.
