I know next to nothing about airplanes, But i got this shot yesterday at the calgary airport. They were doing flybys. Not really touch and goes because they didn't drop the landing gear.
Would fly in, line up with the run way, and just as they got over the start of the runway would bank hard to the west, circle around and do it again. For well over an hour.

Bombardier CRJ200ER

More than likely they were flying the instrument approaches published for that runway in order to confirm they can be flown as charted. No trees have grown up into the approach path, no new cell towers, etc...

They also make sure the navigation frequencies involved are clean and free from interference.

Good looking jet. Nicely captured.

If you want to know more about any plane you photograph, just google the registration letters (in this case C-GFIO) and you can find all you want to know.

It will bring up other photos on airliners.net, along with accurate identification of the aircraft. Plus, data about the aircraft on pages such as this, which should tell you all you want about the plane you shot:

That aircraft is doing exactly what Jay said.

FIO is frequently out shooting approaches for strips that are implementing new RNAV and GPS approach procedeures as well as calibration of Navaids.

She was up through here recently doing some checks on the RNAV approaches in Voisey's Bay, Labrador.

The FAA has aircraft that do that very same job...

Used to be DC-3, but I haven't seen them do it in many years, so I don't know what the FAA uses now.
