A mystery: the helicopter took off in the morning, Aug. 10.

Thanks for reaching out. I am sorry that our flights made you uncomfortable. We were conducting a magnetic survey for research purposes, which involved flying patterns at various altitudes, and it sounds like you were located near one of the patterns that was repeated several times...The aircraft you saw is equipped with magnetometers that measure the earth's naturally occurring magnetic field. These sensors are completely passive and do not emit anything.
I emailed him back and thanked him for getting back to me. Puzzle solved.

I was watching the skies, feet up and reading on the back deck. A helicopter went over us on Saturday afternoon. It was headed to Napanee for an emergency, I found out on Twitter. The Ornge EMS helicopter headed from Ottawa to go to the scene of a vehicle/tractor crash which resulted in a fire.
The helicopter was called off, there was a convoy of emergency vehicles and victims were taken to Kingston hospital. The helicopter headed back to our neck of the woods for a fatal motorcycle crash on highway #511. The highway was closed, as emergency crews did their work. It was the second motorcycle fatality, there was one in Ottawa.
