UPS Mistakenly Delivers Box with U.S. Drone to College Student. Pics of Parcel Go Viral.

A college engineering student got a big surprise Monday when UPS mistakenly delivered him parts of a drone belonging to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The student happens to also be active on Reddit and posted pictures of the surprise delivery on the image-sharing site Imgur.
According to NOAA spokesman David Miller, the student received the wings and ground-control system of a Puma unmanned aerial system — a relatively small aircraft that Miller describes as “basically a flying camera.” A Puma drone is worth about $350,000 when fully assembled.
