A Canadian Coast Guard helicopter made a pit stop at the O’Leary Tim Hortons Thursday morning.

The coffee chain location there is somewhat isolated in that there are empty fields on either side of it – enough clear space for a chopper to land.

Images of the unusual sight made the rounds on local social media channels Thursday and Friday. People who said they were there at the time posted online that the crew stopped for “donuts and coffee,” before taking off and going about their business.
