Finnish Post Office Tests Drone for Parcel Delivery

While companies are experimenting with fast drone delivery in different countries to expedite the logistics process to a matter of minutes, a parcel that was sent more than 30 years ago was finally delivered in Australia. The Viewbank Tennis Club claims that they ordered the package containing embroidered uniform patches in the 1970s. This is the post that the club uploaded on their Facebook page:

It was dutifully delivered to the original recipient, who just happened to live in the same house, and passed on to us at Viewbank Tennis Club!
