Armstrong Whitworth Argosy I: Hideous Vessel.

Armstrong Whitworth Argosy I: Hideous Vessel.The Argosy was procured by Imperial airways after it was decided to discontinue the use of single engined aircraft in their services. This totally inelegant trimotor biplane was employed by Imperial airways for around 10 years (1927-36) at first in their European routes -the prestigious London-Paris flight included-, and later in the South Africa route. Only 3 Argosy I’s were built later joined by 4 of the more powerful mark II model.

Lovely, and flattering, poster…they were not the most dashing looking of the Empire Flag carriers.
