Amazon delivered its first package by drone near Cambridge in the United Kingdom. Prime Air aims to deliver small packages to customers in 30 minutes or less. Last week, the first customer ordered a Fire TV and a bag of popcorn. His order was delivered to his farmhouse in 13 minutes. Amazon posted a video that shows the drone flying over the English countryside. Implementing a drone delivery system in a busy urban area might have more challenges.
