Navy 'Leap Frogs' jump from plane over Capitol

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A trio of skydivers made the Minnesota Capitol their landing spot, with one streaming a giant American flag as he came in.

The elite team of Navy skydivers planned jumped from a plane to the Capitol lawn on Wednesday afternoon as part of a Navy Week celebration in the state. The Leap Frogs, as they're called, are active-duty personnel sanctioned by the Department of Defense. The Leap Frogs are also scheduled to take part in festivities later this week in Duluth.

Two years ago, Lieutenant Gov. Yvonne Prettner Solon joined an Army team in a tandem jump over the Capitol.
