The Armstrong Whitworth Argosy was a British post-war military transport/cargo aircraft and was the last aircraft produced by Armstrong Whitworth Aircraft. The Argosy Series 100 entered service with the American cargo airline Riddle Airlines, which planned to use them to meet contracts to provide logistics support to the United States Air Force within the United States, at the end of 1960.

Two aircraft operated later by SAFE Air in New Zealand as the main link between the Chatham Islands and the mainland, were fitted with a pressurised "passenger capsule". One of these aircraft was damaged beyond repair in a landing accident in April 1990, and a third Argosy was leased by SAFE Air from Mayne Nickless of Australia for five months during 1990 as a replacement. The last flight by a New Zealand Argosy was made by operator SAFE Air in September 1990, that aircraft now being preserved by volunteer owners near Woodbourne Airport, Blenheim, New Zealand. The last Argosies, operated by American cargo airline Duncan Aviation, were withdrawn in 1991
