Amazon Completes First Drone Delivery

December 15, 2016

Amazon.com has made its first drone delivery of a package, by dropping off one of its Fire TV streaming devices and a bag of popcorn to a house in the English countryside 13 minutes after receiving the order, reports Bloomberg.

The delivery occurred Dec. 7 near Cambridge in a zone that U.K. aviation authorities have authorized for drone test flights, according to a tweet Wednesday by company Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos and a video documenting the flight. “First-ever #AmazonPrimeAir customer delivery is in the books,” Bezos said in the tweet. “13 min -- click to delivery."
