Sporty’s Continues its Christmas Tradition

This year’s ornament features the Globe Swift

Sporty’s Crystal Christmas Ornament is an annual tradition for pilots, flight schools, FBOs, and aviation enthusiasts. This year’s ornament, the 37th in the series, features the Globe Swift.

The Globe Swift is a two-seat, retractable gear aircraft from the post-World War II era. With sleek lines, a low stance, and aggressive styling, the Swift has a great ramp presence. Originally designed in 1940, the Swift didn’t receive its type certificate until 1946. Over 1500 of the all-metal taildraggers were produced before production ceased in 1951.

Sporty’s custom-etched Globe Swift Ornament includes a bright red ribbon for hanging along with an insert card describing the airplane. Boxed for gift giving, Sporty’s 2021 Crystal Christmas Ornament [9833A] is available for $24.95 and may be purchased at or by calling 1-800-SPORTYS.
