Today, I was at YYC (Calgary International Airport) spotting, when I noticed that C-GITS, The Azores Glider, was sitting at one of the gates in concourse D, with all doors open, except for the L2 door, which had a connected jetbridge.
I noticed it when I arrived at 13:05 and it was still there when I left at 19:30, with no signs of any movement other than 2 catering trucks parked to the aft of the fuselage.

Quoting Roseflyer (Reply 1): It likely was operating the 7pm YYC-MAN route. I presume it was just waiting for that and the doors were open for ventilation.
There was also a midnight flight to FRA that it might have been operating as well, especially if there was still very little activity going on at 1930. It was quite a warm day here in YYC yesterday so yes the doors were likely open to try and cool the cabin down.
