UPDATED (from 2013) - The Palatka Connection


  • “Let me be clear,’’ wrote Kings Bay Commander Capt. Harvey Guffey Jr., “parachutist intrusions on the base must be eliminated.”  Subsequently,  the offending skydiving business relocated to Palatka, Florida.
  •  Skydiver missing near Seattle thought to be dead.  Kurt Ruppert of  Lake City, Florida was reported missing last Thursday when he failed to drop in at the expected landing zone in King's County, Washington. It is important to note that Kings County is adjacent to Kitsap County, home of a Trident submarine base. Friends say Ruppert is an experienced wing suit jumper.  Ruppert has been skydiving seven or eight years and is good at handling a wing suit, said a friend, Art Shaffer, owner of Skydive Palatka in Palatka, Florida.
Evident coincidences of this magnitude will not be ignored by Naval intelligence, this time." -  Molten Eagle  

"Will Ruppert's body eventually be found in the Puget Sound or even Hood Canal?  Or perhaps he will be found in a tree near Si Mountain?  Either way, the likely cause of death will be the same: hypothermia.      more

UPDATE  #1 -  20 June 2015 

The detective says the items had been in the area much longer than 2 1/2 years, so they would not solve one mystery. Wing suit-wearing skydiver Kurt Ruppert of Lake City, Florida, vanished over Mount Si during a jump in January 2013.  more

+++++++++++ NOTE +++++++++++ 

 How close was Ruppert to Kitsap's Trident Sub Base?  What is the range of a wing suit and direction of prevailing winds at his jump altitude (about 6500 feet)?  Was he immediately apprehended by Kitsap Base authorities and held incommunicado for several months like Ariel J Weinmann, who, it was claimed, had been held in secret for four months after his arrest? - M.E.

Submarines are always silent and strange.
