Nice Photo of a VERY famous aircraft! This Aircraft (CP-900) was used by the Bolivian and United States Government during Anti-Drug Operation "Snowcap" (To destroy and disrupt cocaine production in Bolivia)
I believe it was owned and registered as CP-900 by the Bolivian Government, However a family member that was part of Operation Snowcap says that this aircraft could have been a smugglers aircraft, ceased and registered as CP-900 to the Bolivian Government for the Operation around 1991-1992.

I have some Un-Classified DEA footage that shows this aircraft (CP-900) with the Bolivian and U.S. Army / Customs inside and around the plane (will try to upload that footage for everyone to see)
