Off the ocean probably from the Azores and I believe it went into Valencia

I note that it is now with ALCI Aviation according to the Canadian register and for such an old lady she is looking really well https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/7518549 and https://www.planespotters.net/photo/371702/c-ftgx-bell-geospace-aviation-basler-bt67 .  I believe she is configured for exploration geophysical survey work and gets around all over the world.

Alan,

Must keep an eye open for any further sighting in this neck of the woods.
