Armstrong Whitworth Argosy Propeller Blade - Dowty - Highly Polished - RAF - Price Before Discount £1940 | AEROART.CO.UK

Manufactured in the UK during the 1960s by Dowty propellers, this single propeller blade is believed to have been fitted to an Armstrong Whitworth Argosy.

    The Argosy was a postwar British military cargo aircraft which had a lifting capability of 25,000 lb and a range of 2000 miles. Retired in the mid 70s and replaced by the Lockheed Hercules the Argosy had a successful life in both military and civil use. Originally found in new old stock condition, this propeller blade has been chemically stripped to remove all the paint and then painstakingly polished on both sides to a mirror finish, it has undergone 18 stages of sanding and five stages of polishing to achieve a perfect flawless finish.
