Please help me find some old logos that incorporated some kind of a globe!

I've been trying to do some research into some old logos that use either a globe as the main logomark like this or an extended variant like this.

Can you think of any similar logos?! Airline companies, travel companies, television or cinema companies?

Thanks in advance!

Amway. It doesn't delineate the continents or anything.

IBM 1924 "Globe" logo, and Minolta (too modern? You say "Old" does that mean "no longer used" or "been-around-forever"?)

General Motor's Geo Brand used the globe in several different logos

Re: Dabitch, old as in old enough to appear in black and white movies or to be found on leather flight bags. Maybe 1940s - 1960s?

Sorry I can't really be more specific, it's a little before my time!

Thanks everyone so far!

Family Radio - they've kind of dolled up their logo for the web, but this link has a better image of the old-style logo.

The Universal Studios logo circa-1930s. It's pretty similar to the modern one, except in black and white and with a little airplane circling the equator.

The old RKO logo was in a similar vein, though it only showed a partial globe.
