So close! Zephyr drone lands just hours before setting flight-duration record

An experimental high-altitude drone being tested in conjunction with the United States Army has ended its epic flight just hours before breaking the world record for longest flight duration. 

The Airbus Zephyr S came down on Friday (Aug. 19) after remaining in the air for over 64 days and setting a number of records, including longest continuous flight of an uncrewed aircraft at 64 days, 18 hours, 26 minutes.
