The Huff-Daland Duster was designed in 1925 for a new method of controlling agricultural insect pests with aerial crop dusting. The Huff-Daland Manufacturing Company modified its sturdy Petrel military biplane with a large hopper for chemicals and spraying equipment. Huff-Daland Duster Company, of Macon, Georgia and later Monroe, Louisiana, became the nation's first aerial dusting business and was the forerunner of Delta Air Lines. Highlighted in the image are the propellers of the Huff-Daland Duster.
