GLOBE

Globe Aircraft Corp. incorporated at Fort Worth late 1940 as Bennett Aircraft to make aircraft from Duraloid bakelite-bonded plywood. Name changed early 1941 to Globe, which completed BTC-1 8-seat twin and then developed GC-1B Swift. This shelved during war, when Globe built 600 Beech AT-10 trainers and many other items, but GC-1A and -1B built in large numbers from 1945. Many built by Temco, which took over all rights when Globe failed 1947.
