GLOBE SWIFT GC-1A
The Globe Swift is recognized as a classic post-World War II general aviation aircraft design due to its beauty and sporty flying characteristics. It was also the only multi-seat, complex aircraft under 100 horsepower in the normal category (not experimental) in the United States. The all-metal Globe Swift was a major advance in performance and complexity over the more prevalent and minimally improved pre-war tube, wood and fabric designs still being produced. With its sleek lines and retractable landing gear, this aircraft was an ideal economical civilian counterpart to the fighter aircraft that many pilots flew during World War II. Some have likened the handling and performance of the higher powered Swift GC-1B version to be somewhat reminiscent of a smaller version of the US Army Air Force's P-40 fighter of the early 1940s. The Globe Swift had its beginnings in Fort Worth, Texas in 1940, when R.S. (Pop) Johnson built the first Swift as a homebuilt airplane with a tube and fabric fuselage and Duraloid wings and tail surfaces. Johnson was associated with the Bennett Aircraft Corporation which was originally formed to build aircraft utilizing the new Duraloid (Bakelite-bonded plywood) process developed by Dr. Robert Nebesar. The Bennett Corporation quietly closed its doors in the fall of 1940 but managed a first showing of the Swift in early 1941 as reorganization was underway. The Globe Aircraft Corporation emerged and Johnson's Swift became the Globe GC-1. The somewhat underpowered prototype had a 65hp Continental engine which was subsequently replaced with a more robust 80 hp Continental. Type Certificate ATC# 753 was issued in May 1942 for this airplane. The Swift project was shelved for the duration upon the advent of World War II, and Globe Aircraft went on to build 600 of the all-wood Beechcraft AT-10 twin engine training airplanes for the US Army Air Force under a licensing agreement with the Beech Aircraft Corporation. Toward the end of the war additional wood/metal prototype GC-1's were built, although the end design was the new all-metal Swift GC-1A that we are familiar with today. This was initially a joint effort of Pop Johnson and Chief Engineer K.H. "Bud" Knox. Johnson became disenchanted with the changes to his design and left Globe shortly thereafter to do such aircraft as the "Texas Bullet" and the "Johnson Rocket". The first prototype GC-1A flew in January 1945 and the first production model was completed in November of that year. Type Certificate ATC# 766 was issued on May 7, 1946. While the orders for the GC-1A numbered in the thousands, only a total of 408 GC-1A airplanes were built before the higher powered GC-1B was put into production. The highly stressed GC-1A's robust airframe was a bit on the heavy side and this resulted in somewhat sluggish performance with the normally installed 4 cylinder 85 hp Continental C-85 engine. The improved GC-1B with a 6 cylinder 125 hp Continental C-125 engine provided sparkling performance. The majority of Swift's production was the GC-1B model of which 833 were built in just over six months in 1947. Globe built 504 of them and 329 were built by TEMCO (The Texas Engineering & Manufacturing Co.) hired as a sub-contractor when Globe initially became overwhelmed with orders. However, the post-World War II general aviation production glut soon caught up with Globe and GC-1B production was halted when the parking lots of both companies became full of unsold airplanes. Globe Aircraft filed for bankruptcy and TEMCO took it over in August 1947. TEMCO continued to build and modify the Swift until 1951 when they finally used up the earlier inventory of parts and production became concentrated on military commitments for the Korean War. However, the company still provided spare parts and service for several more years. A grand total of 1,500 GC-1As and Bs were built. The design remained so popular that it was briefly built as a twin trainer for the U.S. and Saudi air forces and, in the 1990s, Roy LoPresti attempted to build a new version, the Swift Fury, but it never made it to production. The airplane is a side-by-side, low-wing monoplane with retractable main landing gear designed to fit in between the inexpensive Cubs or Cessnas and the more sophisticated and expensive four-place Beech Bonanzas or North American Navions. It is an all-metal aircraft construction with exception of the fabric covered moveable aileron, and rudder control surfaces. The fabric covered ailerons are distinctive because only the first 25 production airplanes had them prior to going to all metal units. The fuselage is semi-monocoque structure with brilliant unpainted Alclad aluminum sheet covering the structural aluminum rings and stringers. The 42-inch wide two-place cockpit is enclosed by a four-piece sliding Lucite blue canopy. The front mounted engine is fully cowled. The tapered cantilever wing has aluminum spars with stamped aluminum ribs

The I-16 was introduced in the mid-1930s and formed the backbone of the Soviet Air Force at the beginning of World War II. The diminutive fighter, nicknamed "Ishak" by Soviet pilots, prominently featured in the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Battle of Khalkhin Gol and the Spanish Civil War—where it was called the Rata ("rat") by the Nationalists or Mosca ("fly") by the Republicans. The Finnish nickname for I-16 was Siipiorava ("Flying Squirrel"). Design and development While working on the Polikarpov I-15 biplane, Nikolai Nikolaevich Polikarpov began designing an advanced monoplane fighter. It featured cutting-edge innovations such as retractable landing gear and a fully enclosed cockpit, and was optimized for speed with a short stubby fuselage (similar to Gee Bee R-1) and a Wright Cyclone radial engine in a NACA cowling. The aircraft was small, light and simple to build. Full scale work on the TsKB-12 prototype began in June 1933 and the aircraft was accepted into production on 22 November 1933, a month before it took to the air. The TsKB-12 was of mixed construction using a wooden monocoque fuselage and wings based around a KhMA chrome-molybdenum steel alloy wing spar, dural ribs and D1 aluminum alloy skinning on the center and leading edges, with the remaining portions of the wings fabric covered. Another modern feature were the ailerons which ran almost the entire trailing edge of the wing and also operated as flaps (in the manner of more modern flaperons) by drooping 15°. The cockpit was covered by a 40 cm (16 in) wide canopy which featured an Aldis tubular gun sight which could slide back and forth on runners fitted with bungee cords of rubber. A 225 l (59.4 US gal) fuel tank was fitted directly in front of the cockpit. The main gear was fully retractable by a hand-crank. The armament consisted of a pair of 7.62 mm (0.30 in) ShKAS machine guns in the wings, mounted on the outboard side of the main gear and carried 900 rounds of ammo. These features were proposed at first by Andrei N. Tupolev, however the NII VVS was more concerned about the stresses a typical combat aircraft was subjected to in combat, and initially considered the risk too great. However TsAGI, with the help of the 3rd Design Brigade under the leadership of Pavel O. Sukhoi and Aleksandr P. Putylov eventually convinced NII VVS that what was being proposed was not only feasible, but would enhance the aircraft's performance. The TsKB-12 was designed around the Wright Cyclone SR-1820-F-3 nine cylinder radial engine (rated at 529 kW/710 hp); a license to build this engine was being negotiated. As the license was not yet approved, Polikarpov was asked to settle for the less powerful M-22 (Soviet-built version of the Gnome-Rhone Jupiter 9ASB which itself was a licensed version of the Bristol Jupiter VI ) with 358 kW (480 hp). This was deemed acceptable because the projected top speed still exceeded 300 km/h (185 mph). The M-22 powered TsKB-12 first took to the air on 30 December 1933 with the famous Soviet test pilot Valery Chkalov at the controls. The second TsKB-12 with a Cyclone engine and three-bladed propeller flew in January of the following year. Initial government trials in February 1934 revealed very good maneuverability but the aircraft did not tolerate abrupt control inputs. Thus the TsKB-12 was deemed dangerous to fly and all aerobatics were forbidden. The M-22 version was preferred due to vibration of the Cyclone-powered aircraft. Pilots commented early on about difficulty in climbing into the cockpit, a trait that persisted through I-16's service life. Before continuing test flights the designers had to answer the question of spin behavior. Wind tunnel testing suggested that TsKB-12 with its short tail would enter an unrecoverable flat spin, but real-life trials were necessary to co
