The Globe Swift, also known as Globe / Temco Swift, is a light, two-seat, single-plane passenger aircraft dating from the Second World War. The Swift was designed by R.S. “Pop” Johnson in 1940. The conception was funded by John Kennedy, President of the Globe Medicine Company, to be built by his new Globe Aircraft Company. World War II halted the project, but the 85hp GC-1A Swift, billed as the “All Metal Swift”, designed by K.H. “Bud” Knox, received its certificate of airworthiness on May 7, 1946.
