This is pretty cool news!  The Air National Guard unit that is based in Niagara Falls will soon be piloting unmanned drones that fly around the world.  That's right, just like a video game, men and women will control a plane from a control room.  Lawmakers in Washington made the decision official, finalizing a defense bill that has the Guard's 107th Airlift Wing to fly these missions.

*A little side note- The unit may get to keep some of the C-130 cargo planes that Air Force officials had planned to move to different bases.
