Aug. 16 (UPI) -- A hungry New Jersey man took his paramotor -- an unusual aircraft featuring a parachute and a back-mounted propeller -- to McDonald's to pick up some food.

Tucker Gott posted a video to YouTube Aug. 4 showing his quest for burgers using his paramotor aircraft.

"People often ask 'can you fly that thing to work/school/the store?' Although it's not really practical to do daily, I sometimes find an interesting place to land. This McDonald's had a nice grass field that begged for a landing. Luckily, the local citizens found it intriguing and didn't call the cops," Gott wrote in the video's description.

Gott explains in the video that he took caution not to break any laws or put any members of the public in danger during his flight.

The video shows Gott land in a grassy clearing next to the fast food restaurant, obtain a burger, and eat his food victoriously on the flight home.

"If you're going to eat a McDonald's burger, this is most definitely the way to do it," Gott says in the video.
