Ad Executive Who Helped Name the Big Mac Has Died at 89

Amazon claims first successful Prime Air drone delivery

The breakthrough suggests that autonomous aerial delivery could become a viable business sooner than thought, albeit only for customers with huge gardens, who live close to the delivery depot, and want items weighing less than 2.6kg.

Currently, the trial is only open to two customers, but Amazon says it hopes to expand that to dozens in the coming months. For those customers, Prime Air is available for no extra cost. The company says the delivery, which took place last week, involved fully autonomous flight, with no human pilot involved in the process.
