The Warhawk Air Museum is entering the 21st century.
The museum known for World War Two aircraft is showing off the latest remote control drones to show kids what the future holds.
It's using the old to promote the new.

"Using their onboard camera systems to generate a 3D image of the p-40 n Warhawk which is behind us."
Drone days is an opportunity to show how many opportunities are available in the air.

"Drone days at Warhawk is really all about the educational mission and it's kid focused."
Power Engineers Inc. showed how their drones can scan objects into computers.
And local colleges offering drone courses were also on hand.
One student from NNU says he's interested.

"It's a big field like artificial intelligence.  So it's something I'm looking at."
And as an added benefit, you can take time to look through the Warhawk Museum to see just how far the world of aviation has truly come.

Drone days continues tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
It's free for kids 15 and under who are accompanied by a paying parent.
