How long will it before one collides with an aircraft or helicopter, or crashes on a house?

I don't see how Lynn? If Amazon are setting up their own delivery system, it's going to take business away from them.

They need it, about 3 months ago it took the USPS nearly a week to get a 4lb parcel, from Reston and on to a plane at Dulles, the rest of the journey took less than 12 hours. For those who don't know the Washington DC area, Reston is on the direct route between Dulles and Washington.

Must just be the location. I order stuff from the west coast all the time and it rarely takes more than three days for delivery, and that is parcel post.

My motto: Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow as it may not be required. This no longer applies in light of current events.
