CONWAY — In one giant leap for breakfast time, a group of CAD III students  in Joe Riddensdale's class at Kennett High successfully delivered a bagel sandwich from Big Dave's Bagels to the top of Eagles’ Way via drone on Friday morning. While it wasn’t quite the same as being in Kitty Hawk in 1903 when Orville and Wibur Wright made lifted off in the first powered aircraft, or when Neal Armstrong set foot on the moon, but it still was a groundbreaking moment for the local flock of Eagles. “I believe we’re probably the first in the state to deliver food via a drone,” said Riddensdale, drafting and aviation teacher at KHS, who along with his Computer-Aided Design III students helmed the successful flight.

According to Wikipedia, “civilian UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) now vastly outnumber military UAVs, with estimates of over a million sold by 2015. ”In under 15 minutes, the school's drone delivered a half-pound breakfast sandwich from the shop at the foot of the hill to the rear entrance of Kennett High, where the bagel landed in a box at the feet of Virginia Schrader, director of the MWV Career and Technical Center. “I heard last year before COVID-19 that somewhere else in the country they did deliver food, but I’m pretty sure we’re the first in New Hampshire,” Riddensdale said.

On Friday, he used his own personal drone, a Mavic mini (dubbed Woodstock I), to fly about 100 feet above Snoopy I, which was flying at between 150-250 feet to record video below to document the mission. “We did a checklist (on Thursday), and it worked out pretty well,” said Mehta, a senior. On Friday, Siefer, a junior, flew Snoopy I with the prized cargo attached, a breakfast sandwich bagel fresh off the grill made by Sue Hausman of Big Dave’s. “What they’re doing is pretty amazing,” Hausman said.
