NEW YORK (AP) - Flying burritos will soon be a reality over Virginia Tech.
    
Chipotle is taking part in a test this month that will let some of the university's students and staff have their favorite tortilla-wrapped meal delivered by drone.
    
Virginia Tech is conducting the test with Project Wing , a unit of Google owner Alphabet Inc., which makes self-flying devices that deliver food, medicine and other goods.
    
Chipotle's burritos will be put together at a food truck and then loaded on a drone.
    
Mark Blanks, director of Virginia Tech's Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership says the flights will take place at an undisclosed site on Virginia Tech property, but not at the main campus in Blacksburg.
