PRESS RELEASE: 25.08.2016
Our new Virtual flights will take off early next year.
In the meantime the Argosy Café is temporarily closed, and we are looking for a new operator; they need to be experienced, enthusiastic and creative, serving up modern cuisine in a family-friendly aviation themed environment. In other words, “First Class meals – Economy Class prices.”
We are advertising nationwide and we’re happy to talk with anyone who would like to be involved in making the Argosy a unique and must-see Marlborough attraction.
The Armstrong Whitworth Argosy was a British post-war military transport/cargo aircraft and was the last aircraft produced by Armstrong Whitworth Aircraft. Although given different type numbers, the AW.650 civil and AW.660 military models were both called “Argosy” and for practical purposes are basically the same design.
