Amazon completes first US drone delivery

Amazon Prime Air delivered its first package via drone in the U.S., reports CNET.

The flight, which occurred March 20, took place in controlled air space at Palm Springs (Calif.) International Airport.

The drone delivered a few bottles of sunscreen to onlookers at Amazon's MARS 2017 conference in Palm Springs.

While Amazon has been conducting test flights for several years, federal regulations have prevented the company from completing any flights outside of private land, according to CNET.
