This Huff-Daland Duster was designed to perform aerial crop dusting and eventually became the first aircraft to be used by the forerunner of the international airline Delta Air Lines. It is currently on view at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia and will be moved to the National Air and Space Museum’s building in Washington, D.C., for installation in the transformed “America by Air” gallery, scheduled to open in 2021.
