On The Air: October 2013

There is an active parachute drop zone in the area of Gardiner, New York that is monitored by ATC. I overheard the following recently:
ATC had just made an announcement: “Attention all aircraft, jumpers away over Gardiner airport, one-five thousand feet and below. Use caution.”
A few minutes later: “New York Approach, Cessna X-Ray Yankee Zulu. Do you know if the jumpers are down yet?”
ATC: “I’m not sure, but if not I know they’re headed in that direction.”
