Noticed AP-BHC cabin doors without prominent outline paint that help rescue teams in locating doors in poor light/visibility conditions.

This is how it should have been:

Can it be due to ongoing paint job?

The same aircraft appears to have emergency exit window & cabin door outlined in another picture.

Thank you;

Considering you are talking about the viewing index on Flickr, most of the old pictures are made public in past couple of days, so it has lower viewing counts

Following are from my first spotting session at ISB. I am sure i've shared these before but just in case :)

That Challenger is construction number 5955. It was built in 2013 and flew under Canadian registration C-GWQR.
