A Basler BT-67 (turbine DC-3) aircraft operated by ALCI Aviation, was conducting a flight from Round Lake, Ontario, Canada to Pickle Lake, Ontario. After landing the aircraft taxied eastbound on taxiway Bravo. As the aircraft was approaching the intersection of taxiway Alpha, a plow vehicle was travelling southbound to perform maintenance on the apron. The vehicle and C-GEAJ made contact on taxiway Bravo. As a result of the contact, the left wing of C-GEAJ sustained substantial damage.
It was reported that there were no markings to identify the edge of the taxiway from the apron.

The aircraft was subsequently ferried to Oshkosh, USA for repairs and returned to service.
