WOW, what an awesome picture
It's certainly not a Canadair CT-114 Tutor. The CL-41 moniker was Canadair's internal model designation for the Tutor type.

This a/c in the photo is a Bombardier CL-415 according to the Canadian Civil Aircraft Registry.

This type was originally designed and first built by Canadair and now part of Bombardier Aerospace.

I wrote CL415 in the a/c type box when uploading and it didn't accept it as the proper type. I'm well aware it's not a CT-114 Tutor
Shane Heard - I presumed as much and such FA data entry quirks are often seen happening on the site.
still a great photo!

Cliff731, yeah there's always been an issue with a/c type on here

Minor correction: In Oct 2016, Viking Air Ltd acquired the type certificate of the CL215/T/415 from Bombardier
Forget the site gremlins, that is a great picture!

All I can say is WOW What a great photo.

Hey, Shane, pretty amazing, for sure! Just how did you do that?
OMG, great timing! Nice picture!

CDBrozovich, Long exposure, 30 seconds or so, set the camera on a tripod while the northern lights were out and just let the shutter stay open for a while.

it is not a CL-415, it is a CL-215T
honza nl,

This is actually a 415. The 215T has only 2 water drop doors.

Great photo!

Irrespective of what detail or type of aircraft this might be, it fades into insignificance with the beautiful northern sky behind it.

Beautiful shot Shane, thanks! :)

...how about we just agree it's an awesome ploto and leave it at that...
Beautiful composition. Hope this encourages everyone to see a good display of the northern lights at least once in their lifetime. Photos never quite do justice. Time-exposures wash out the intricate structure and fast-moving dynamics. 30-seconds did a good job of capturing the star field, more apparent in the "large" size image. Two stars near the left edge are the big dipper pointer stars, with the north star straight up about 15 degrees above the top edge, consistent with around midnight in early October; or 8pm in December but I see no snow.

Very nice view and interesting composition with the Northernlights.
Technicaly, the CL215 is powerd by radial engines while the CL415 is the turbo version.

You should be able to tag CL2T with your photos to show up as CL-415. You can view some similar photos here: https://flightaware.com/photos/aircrafttype/CL2T
