TISDALE, SK – A Saskatchewan man took an ice cream craving to extremes last month by landing a helicopter in the middle of a Dairy Queen parking lot.
The chopper touched down at the Tisdale location around 5pm July 31, blowing up dust and debris in the high traffic area.
RCMP say the landing was definitely not an emergency as a passenger climbed out and walked into the restaurant to buy an ice cream cake.
The pilot, a 34 year old man from a nearby town, is licensed to fly but Mounties say it was illegal to land where he did.
He’s been charged with one count of dangerous operation of an aircraft and is due in court early next month.
