AirVūz News: World of Drones 06/15/20

Published 06/15/2020 06:58

We begin in Canada where four people have been charged with attempting to fly a drone into a prison. The authorities say that the drone was carrying a package believed to be containing weapons, tobacco and cannabis into the Collins Bay Institute in Kingston, Ontario. After a thorough investigation, darting back to the end of March when the drone was intercepted, Ontario Provincial Police arrested and charged Marc Fountain, Nachoua Hiba-Kord, Len Aragon and Rachel Chen on June 9th. While speaking with Global News Canada, the Collins Bay Institution said that they are looking into various solutions to stop instances like this from happening in the future.Now let’s go from one end of the drone delivery spectrum to the other. Wing, a drone delivery service owned by Google parent Alphabet, is now going to be offered Library books delivered by drone. The idea was hatched by Kelly Passek, a middle school librarian who has used drone delivery for other Items in the past. "I think kids are going to be just thrilled to learn that they are going to be the first in the world to receive a library book by drone," said Passek. Wing is set to fly their first books out this week. 

Now…. here in no particular order are the Top-5 drone videos uploaded to AirVuz last week:

Always an AirVuz fan favorite, Beemflights takes us to the North Holland town of Zaanse Schans for a fantastic foggy flight over windmills. While In most cases these windmills are one of the Netherlands more popular tourist attractions, Beem Flights filmed this area empty due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Truly unreal to see.
