Amazon planning to deliver packages with blimps and drones

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Amazon may have the plan in the works to deliver by blimp and drones.

The company was approved for a patent in April for airborne warehouses. The patent describes how Amazon blimps would circle over cities at 45,000 feet and launch drones carrying packages.

The drones would initially fall to earth, and their motors would fire up for the final stretch.

Packages would be delivered, and then a nearby shuttle would fly the drones back to the blimp.
