NAS keeps eye on Isaac

PENSACOLA, Fla. -- Naval Air Station Pensacola officials are pondering the possibility of evacuating some assets, notably students and aircraft, if Tropical Storm Isaac threatens. Relocations would include up to 5,000 military students who would be evacuated to a Marine Corps base in Georgia. Some of the 100 or so planes at the base will be placed in hangars, but most will be flown to bases outside the threatened zone. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, WALA-TV, 08/23/12)
