Wing Approaches 100,000 Drone Deliveries 2 Years After Launch   By TechCrunch

Two years after its pilot launched in Logan, Australia, Alphabet's drone delivery company Wing is nearing its 100,000th customer delivery.

Wing's Jonathan Bass said the service will be expanded in Australia, Finland, and the U.S. over the next six months.   However, Bass noted, "The capabilities of the technology are probably ahead of the regulatory permissions right now."

Wing's drones have a range of six miles and can carry up to three pounds. They travel at about 100-150 feet in the air, sink to about 23 feet at their destination, and lower packages to the ground with a tether.

The company said customers placed orders for 4,500 deliveries during the first week of August, which works out to one every 30 seconds during Wings delivery window.  ....
