Mailmen around the world just took a collective sigh. The first-ever drone delivery took place on Friday in Virginia and it was a booming success!
The Australian drone manufacturer Flirtey created the gadget and representatives from the company stood by anxiously as the drone made its initial flight.
Companies like Amazon and Wal-Mart have flirted with idea of drone deliveries and it looks like the time has almost come for that to be a reality. The drone manufacturer worked with NASA and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to launch the drone and carry out the mission.
The drone took 4.5kg of medical supplies to a rural health clinic Wise County Fairgrounds over three three-minute trips. The drone took off Lonesome Pine Airport, Virginia, and landed in the fairgrounds over five miles away.
