The Zephyr S drone has been flying for 26 continuous days, breaking its own previous record of 25 days, 23 hours and 57 minutes, set in 2018.
The device took off on June 15 from the Army test range in Yuma, Arizona, United States. According to The Drive the first ten days it flew over the Yuma area and an adjacent wildlife refuge.
However, on June 25, it left that area to head south and flew parallel to the southern border, towards the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea until arriving in Belize four days later. After spending a few days over the airspace of that country, he headed back to the US.
The previous mark was registered in the Guinness Book of World Records, established by the same device on a flight over Arizona between July 11 and August 5, 2018, RT reported in Spanish.
