Crop Dusters

Delta’s predecessor Huff Daland Dusters—the world’s first aerial crop-dusting company—started commercial operations in 1924, flying the first aircraft designed for agricultural work. After purchasing the company in 1928, Delta gradually replaced the Dusters with Stearmans, and a few Travel Airs planes, and continued dusting operations until 1966.
