LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Could it be an elaborate April Fools' Day joke? White Castle says you could soon have sliders brought to you via a drone.

The fast food chain announced today it would begin nationwide delivery of crave cases using Crave Copters.

White Castle says it has a fleet of 1,500 drones across the U.S.

A team of former air force pilots will fly the Crave Copters.

White Castle says delivery time will depend on how close the customer is to the restaurant. There will also be an additional delivery fee for anyone who orders the Crave Copter service.

No word yet if this is just the company having some fun on April Fools' Day.
