Mystery solved:

"The drone was carrying a 'non-relevant' blood sample (that is, one which had been previously analysed) in a bid to see whether flight conditions affected the sample."

Well, did the crash affect it then?

Health insurance will go up again if blood-sample transports involve police diver costs etc. in future.

but the drones were made in the USA so that's a really long fight to get to Zurich


but not impossible check out the path this small aircraft took from the u.s. to Switzerland

My boss flew his Maule over to the UK along a similar route. Flew the whole time in an exposure suit. Boring (slow) and terrifying at the same time!

Used to be the only way to get to Europe from the US (by air), back in the day.

They could always go the long way, via Siberia/Alaska, and cross almost no water at all. Might need a bit more than an exposure suit, though.

Could be worse. I spent a few years working in offshore oil. Most of the time the transport to the rig was via heli, so you had to wear an exposure suit.

The bears worked 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off. Imagine putting on a rubber suit which, for something close to half the time it is used, has been worn by someone who's been pissed for 2 straight weeks.

Re: Transport drone crashed in Lake Zurich

Looks like security patrolls on private property will be done by drones in the near future...

Azur Drones, leader in surveillance UAVs, has just received the first and only DGAC approval for a fully-automated drone Skeyetech system which takes off from a docking station and requires no remote pilot. This specific approval is unprecedented since any authorized flight scenario in France requires a qualified pilot.

drones can fly over private areas, Beyond Visual Line Of Sight (BVLOS), day or night, in urban areas, under simple supervision of a remote operator. With this unique approval, the system will be directly operated by a security guard with no pilot license. The drone will thus be used to patrol the area or provide valuable aerial insights in case of an alarm.
