But in the modern day of documenting every single thing that you do, the man snapped a photo of his chopper in front of McDonald’s before flying away, because stories. “Oh, for real?” a man can be heard asking in the clip. “I thought it was an emergency.” Nope. Dude just wanted some Macca’s. According to 9 News Australia, concerned citizens sent the news outlet a video of the incident, and although it’s bit unusual, the landing may not have been illegal.
