Hi Mark, that really is an interesting shot, and as was stated it is an Avro Arrow CF-105. It was reproduce to full size by volunteers and donations from various locale aerospace firms.
According to Wikipedia sources it is painted to reflect the colors of Arrow 25203. It was rolled out on 26-September 2006, and displayed at The Canadian Air and Space Museum. But for whatever dumb ass reason they could no longer stay at their current site, and all the a/c where then stored at or near the Pearson International Airport until such time that they can hopefully find a new site.
I believe and I could be very wrong but this maybe the a/c in question as why it was off loaded from Korean Airlines Cargo 747 is certainly a mystery to me as much as why this program was cancel some 50 years ago,but that's another e-mail. regards Dirk ps sorry for being long winded

Are you sure it`s a mock up?, maybe it`s the ship supposedly flown to England at the end of the program LOL...... let the conspiracy theories fly.

Yeah, just caught the typo, should read Avro...

You're right, this is an Avrow Arrow but sadly just a mock up. Apparently it has never had a tail and will never leave the ground! It was removed from the belly of a Korean Airlines Cargo 747 some weeks ago and has sat outside the hangar here for quite some time. Not sure where she came from or where she'll end up.

The most awesome of catches, looks like part of a Avro Arrow! All airframes and tooling were thought to be destroyed btw are you playing a April fools joke early?
