Special Delivery ~ Drone Delivers Engagement Ring

Aerial photographers usually get comissioned to supply footage for television, or to create photographs to be given as birthday presents or retirement gifts.

Duncan Scobie was recently hired for a different job - to deliver an engagement ring by drone!

Duncan had to obtain special permission from RNAS Culdrose to fly a drone in the no-fly zone surrounding it, and also from the Polurrian Hotel.

As you can see from the above video, everything went according to plan for happy couple Jamie Hoskin and Lee Parkes.

Is this the first engagement ring delivery by drone? It was certainly newsworthy, as the story was picked up by BBC Spotlight and BBC Radio Cornwall.
