Douglas DC-3 (turbine) (C-GGSU) - Rare visitor. Originally built as a DC3/C47 in 1944 with a registration of 42-93518, but got remodeled into a Basler BT-67 later on in 2002. Between the 1st given registration in 1944 and current reg of C-GGSU, it was changed about 10+ times and was converted between military and commercial. It was/still might be owned by CGG Aviation, a natural resource/environmental company in Canada that does gas/oil exploration projects, but I think they gave up the aircraft recently. Their logo has been removed from the tail and the long stick (aka magnetometer tail boom) on the back is gone. The pointy radar nose is still on there though. Hope this info helps if you were wondering :)
