Incredible Amazon Story - Technology or Science Fiction !

Recommended Posts

I guess it's real ... just discovered ... Amazon has a patent on a giant flying drone Mothership zeppelin warehouse. It will fly at 45,000feet, shuttle employees and fuel to the Mothership. Drones will leave the airship flying everywhere making deliveries. I am taking bits of information out of two articles. I will put the links in for both articles.

Additional, smaller airships would be used to return the drones back to the AFC, resupply the mothership with more inventory and fuel, and shuttle workers to the flying factory."
