Exclamation What Plane is This?

This plane had been here since like 2 months ago. Not sure if it even is a plane! Anyways, it is dark gray, and it is parked at the parking near the FedEx planespotting area at Pearson in Toronto. It seems to be pitching up on the ground. I got one picture of it, with a HD camera so you can see it. It has one engine, and the engine is silver. Also it looks like it is some kind of military jet. The aircraft looks like it has no tail, and only the fuselage, and the engine and a bit of the main wings.

From the shape, the cockpit and what i presume are high mounted wings, it reminds me of a SEPECAT Jaguar, but then the Canadian air force doesn't use those right?

From my look, I'd say it's the fuselage of an F-111 (can't determine variant tho).

I don't think so because it has a cockpit hump.

Somebody needs to just get a closer picture off Vanguard. Canada does have some private Alfajets and Hunters which are flyable.

The Mock up of the Much cherished and missed Avro Arrow that used to be on display at the equally much missed Downsview Air Museum

They seem to move it around a lot. It is covered in a shrink wrap to protect it from the elements. I think Pearson needs to show this beauty off instead of covering her

And so it is. The cockpit looks so similar to it. Now that I know it is an Avro Arrow mock up, why is it gray, instead of red and white? And is this 1:1 or 1:2 or something.

It is full sized. Covered in Grey Shrink wrap. I saw the actual mock up back at Downsview.

This plane deserves to be shown off and not covered up

I hope Pearson will show it to the guests at the Airside Tour. Hope we'll see it.

I have been on two Airside Tours in the past, and to be honest, Do not expect that to happen

I think is paragraph from Wikipedia describes this one at Pearson:

"The Avro Museum is building a 2/3rds scale, manned, high performance flying replica of the Avro Arrow (officially known as ARROW II) to Canadian Aviation Experimental Aircraft Regulations in order to become an airshow demonstration aircraft. Construction began in October 2007, and by 2012 the fuselage was completed and passed its first MDRA inspection, and now has a serial number. Powered by a pair of Pratt & Whitney JT-15D-4s, the ARROW II will have a top speed of approximately 500 knots and a range of 1,800 miles. Current projections show a final cost of the project at approximately one million dollars and it is hoped that ground tests will start in about 2016 with the first flight to follow."

Or this one:

"This replica is now in storage (in the airport area) after being displayed at the Toronto International Centre (across the road from where the actual aircraft were built) for a technology trade show that ran from 30 September to 4 October 2013. The future plans for the replica as well as the other remaining aircraft in the now closed CASM is still up in the air. The museum is seeking a location near Pearson International Airport, so that it can display some time in 2015, all of its artifacts including a partly restored Avro Lancaster bomber."

The Avro Museum is in Calgary and their Arrow II project is NOT the one at YYZ.

Avro Museum - Museum

So I think it is this one then:

"This replica is now in storage (in the airport area) after being displayed at the Toronto International Centre (across the road from where the actual aircraft were built) for a technology trade show that ran from 30 September to 4 October 2013. The future plans for the replica as well as the other remaining aircraft in the now closed CASM is still up in the air.
