Armstrong Whitworth AW-660 Argosy C1 - UK - Air Force
This photo is copyright protected and may not be used in any way without proper permission.
The RAF Argosy fleet was retired to RAF Kemble in the early ‘70s and a number remained in storage there until the last ones were broken up around 1976. Here, two are seen parked on the disused crosswind runway near Main Site in the winter of 1975. The nearer one is ex-70 Sqn, Near East Air Force, Akrotiri, Cyprus. The other is from one of the Benson squadrons, and retains the silver lower surfaces of a colour scheme dating from before about 1964 when the more durable Light Aircraft Grey was adopted.
