Amazon's latest weapon in the e-commerce wars: Its own air force - The Washington Post

Panzer was tootling around in the Catosphere when he almost got side-swiped by a Boeing 767 jet. Following the big bully took our brave kitty boy to The Washington Post site. There he discovered the plane belongs to Amazon.

I am not a happy kitty.
A post at the site by Sarah Halzack explains it was Amazon One doing a test flight. Amazon has leased 40 planes as part of their delivery service to use between warehouses. They also own 4,000 truck trailers as part of the same delivery service. It turns out, Amazon has already been using 11 of the planes they leased before this official announcement, but this is the first plane to have the Amazon logo. The other planes will get the logos in the near future. There's a photo of the jet with the post so you can see the logo placement. The post also explains about the planes' uses in the delivery chain.

Panzer says, "Amazon better have good insurance ... That plane almost hit my Panzermobile."

Note: This is a short-medium length post. Bring a cup of tea and two muffins for today's reading selection.
