Thursday, October 16, 2014, 6:37 PM - A photo captured by Capt. Ray Connelly of the Airforce featuring two Canadian helicopters over a fjord in Nunavut has been viewed more than a million times, according to the Huffington Post.

When uploaded to the image-sharing site Reddit, it was captioned "two helicopters from Canada's 438 Tactical Helicopter Squadron take off from a Canadian aircraft carrier" -- which probably helped generate at least a few clicks.

Sadly, the fjord didn't act as a makeshift aircraft carrier, as the photo suggests.

The CH-146 Griffon 'copters were in the process of transporting communications equipment to Ellesmere Island.

They departed from St. Hubert, Quebec and the journey spanned 4,000 kilometres.
