Delivered to 267 Sqn in 4.63 but soon transferred to 215 Sqn at Changi. Joined 114/267 Sqn in 5.68 and featured at the Paris Air Show in 6.71 but 114 Sqn disbanded at RAF Benson four months later and the Argosy fleet went into storage with 5MU from 1972. XR106 was sold to Hants & Sussex Aviation for parts and succumbed to the scrapper's axe next month
