Photo Comment

This is one of the original eighteen aeroplanes specifically designed by Huff-Daland to perform aerial crop dusting. C.E. Woolman took over the company in 1928 and renamed it Delta Air Service. To generate extra revenue a seat was added in the duster bin to fly passengers and the company became the forerunner of Delta Air Lines. This piece of history is now on display at the Southern Museum of Flight.
